Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

So a guy or a gal walks into a bar and orders a . . . what? A Belgian lambic? A German Hefeweizen? An American barley wine? Today, with thousands of beers being made in the U.S. and many, many imported ales and lagers available at taverns and retailers, the once-simple decision to have a beer may feel a little like drowning. Drinkology Beer to the rescue. James Wallerand#8217;s new book is written especially for beer lovers who have no idea what and#8220;spargeand#8221; or and#8220;IBUand#8221; might mean. After covering the basics of brewing, Waller provides an informative, witty, and accessible compendium of the globeand#8217;s beer styles, ranging from Abbey Ale to Zwickel. With special features including a roundup of and#8220;beer cultureand#8221; (such as beer songs and movies about beer), notes on touring breweries, and a selection of beer-cocktail recipes and food dishes you can make with beer, Drinkology Beer is a beer book completely unlike any other.
