It''s a great time to be a beer drinker, but also the most
confusing, thanks to the dizzying array of available draft beers.
Expert Joshua Bernstein comes to the rescue with The Complete
Beer Course, demystifying the sudsy stuff and breaking down
the elements that make beer''s flavor spin into distinctively
different and delicious directions. Structured around a series of
easy-to-follow classes, his course hops from lagers and pilsners to
hazy wheat beers, Belgian-style abbey and Trappist ales, aromatic
pale ales and bitter IPAs, roasty stouts, barrel-aged brews,
belly-warming barley wines, and mouth-puckering sour ales. There is
even a class on international beer styles and another on pairing
beer with food and starting your own beer cellar. Through
suggested, targeted tastings, you''ll learn when to drink down-and
when to dump those suds down a drain.
