As the craft beer craze continues to sweep the nation, more and more people are deciding to try their hand at creating their own perfect brew. In Craft Beer for the Homebrewer, beer writer and certified cicerone (think sommelier for beer) Michael Agnew merges the passions of consumption and creation into one definitive guidebook, designed for the craft beer lover who also happens to be a homebrew enthusiast. Agnew presents dozens of recipes adapted by craft brewmasters for the homebrewer to make in his or her own kitchen, basement, garage, or patio. Based on the actual production beers of featured microbreweries, these recipes cover the entire range of beer styles--ambers and pales, IPAs, stouts and porters, Irish and Scottish ales, Belgians, and wheats--representing craft breweries from across the United States. Each recipe is accompanied by full-color photography, an ingredient list, instructions for both the mash and extract brewer, and historical and anecdotal notes about the brewery that provided it. Agnew prefaces the book with an introduction to the craft beer industry, briefly discussing the major ingredients and required equipment that homebrewers will encounter inside. With its meticulous selection of delicious beer varieties, Craft Beer for the Homebrewer offers a beautifully designed collection of microbrews for the homebrewer on the cutting edge of the craft beer scene.

Brew Like the Pros!
As the craft beer craze continues to sweep the nation, the hobby of homebrewing is enjoying parallel growth. In this new book, beer writer and Certified Cicerone® Michael Agnew merges these two passions into a collection of pro-brewer-developed recipes for beer lovers who also happen to be homebrew enthusiasts. Inside, Agnew presents 38 recipes provided and adapted by craft brewmasters for homebrewers to make in their own kitchens, basements, or garages. Based on actual production beers representing 23 breweries, the recipes span the range of styles-pales and IPAs, stouts and porters, wheats and ryes, Belgians, pilsners, and more. Each is prefaced by a brief explanation of the style and the beer's background and accompanied by color photography of the production versions as well as the breweries themselves. Craft Beer for the Homebrewer also includes instructions for both extract and mash brewers and sidebar profiles detailing the histories of the breweries and brewers represented, most of whom started out as homebrewers themselves. The result is a beautifully designed, thoughtfully assembled collection for homebrewers searching for new inspiration or looking to emulate the work of their favorite brewmasters.

Editorial Reviews

"The craft-beer industry has exploded in recent years, with nearly 2.4000 craft breweries in the U.S. and counting, and this has led to a renaissance in the hobby of home brewing. No longer do beer connoisseurs have to settle for that commercial American swill that Chicago newspaper columnist Mike Royko once famously wrote "tastes as if it were brewed through a horse." Although the most comprehensive homebrew-recipe book may be Clone Brews, by Tess and Mark Szamatulski, this entry differs from the usual clone approach by offering 38 authentic recipes contributed by the craft brewmasters themselves. Here you will find artisan pale ales, IPAs, porters, stouts, lagers, Belgians, and wheat beers that you can re-create in your own kitchen. Some of the more enticing offerings include "Coney Island Mermaid Pilsner," from Schmaltz Brewing; "Hop Stoopid" and "Little Sumpin Sumpin'," from Lagunitas Brewing Company;"Buffalo Sweat," from Tallgrass Brewing Company; and "Hazelnut Brown Nectar," from Rogue Ales. So many beers, so little time." -Booklist
