About the Author

WILLIAM BOSTWICK is a writer and beer critic. He likes brewing old-school styles like heather beers (but understands why some of them have gone extinct).
 
JESSI RYMILL is a designer and editor. She collects labels and bottle caps and wonders why the beers with the weirdest designs usually taste the best. Together, they live, work, and brew in Brooklyn and San Francisco.

Editorial Reviews

" Beer Craft is a terrific primer for anyone looking to enter the endlessly fascinating world of homebrewing. Authors William and Jessi struck a perfect balance: Beer Craft is both quite educational while being effortless to follow!" —Greg Koch, co-founder and CEO, Stone Brewing Co.   “Bostwick and Rymill demystify the esoteric process of homebrewing. ...

With it, the greenest homebrewer could go into the kitchen with confidence and make great
