Brewing craft and artisanal beer has become a labor of love for enthusiasts and epicures the world over, with new people joining the ranks every year. The Brewer’ s Apprentice is a behind-the-scenes guide to all aspects of this ancient art. However, instead of simply sharing brewing recipes, tasting guides, or buying recommendations as many other books do, our book gives readers unique insights into craft brewing culture, and lets the “ masters” share their own expertise. In a series of in-depth profiles, the legends, innovators, and rising stars of the beer world share their deep reserves of brew knowledge, insider tips, recipes, and more. Inside you’ ll learn: sourcing the best ingredients, brewing “ locally” and seasonally, farm-to-table brewing, fine-tuning your home-brewing skills, brewing chemistry, nontraditional ingredients, barrel-aging beers, and extreme brews, meads, lambics, ciders and other classic brews.

Review:

"Koch (coauthor, The Craft of Stone Brewing Co.), cofounder and CEO of Stone Brewing Company, and freelance writer and beer judge Allyn have put together an in-the-trenches-with-greatness empirical guide to beer brewing. After laying the groundwork with extremely concise nuts and bolts (with charts, print and online references, a glossary, and ingredient profiles), the authors turn to guidance, as each element of the process or varietal character trait is broken down by experts and notables. Maestros from Summit, Russian River, Schneider & Sohn, Dogfish Head, BrewDog, Fuller, Captain Lawrence, and Tugwell spill on mash and lautering, bittering hops, ales, Belgian style, lambic, brewing with fruit, barrel aging, ciders, meads, and evaluating beer. Verdict: Just as a choice session brew is guided by mood, circumstance, and season, this book is designed to be browsed as your taste dictates—not necessarily read straight through. That said, it is not to be dismissed as casual—there is heady methodology, insight, a troubleshooting guide, and evidenced trial and outcome here. For those who see beer as a means, not an end. In the best possible sense, you will need a drink to get through this." —Library Journal Xpress Review
