Beerology: Everything You Need To Know To Enjoy Beer...even More is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.

If you’ve ever experienced the pleasure of a pint, Beerology is the ultimate guide to exploring, understanding and enjoying the world of beer.
 
THERE IS a beer for every mood, food and occasion. And, with the growing number of beer festivals popping up worldwide, beer is finally getting the attention and appreciation it deserves. For the average beer lover, the overwhelming choices, brewing styles and traditions can be confusing to say the least. Enter beer specialist Mirella Amato - one of only seven Certified Master Cicerones (beer sommeliers) in the world. With an advanced brewing certificate behind her, readers will be in expert hands as they navigate the multifaceted world of beer, guided by Amato's refreshingly accessible style.
 
Broken down into fun, easy-to-read chapters, Beerology starts with an introduction to beer and tips on storage and cellaring, then leads into a guide on tasting. Amato presents beer styles in four groups—Refreshing, Mellow, Striking, and Captivating—covering everything from the history and origins of specific brews, to brands that exemplify each type. She then gives tips on hosting beer-tasting parties at home, complete with beer games, and includes a chapter dedicated to beer cocktails (who’s in for a delicious cucumber Pils?). Her original take on pairing beer with food—including chocolate and cheese—is perfect for anyone with an inquisitive mind and an epicurean streak.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great gift Bought this as a present for my dad and he loved it! The only reason why I took off a star is that the binding was upside down from the rest of the book. Never had that happen before.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beerology by Mirella Amato - Highly Recommended! This is one of the most beautiful books I've seen in a long time. The look, images, and layout compliment the variety and strength of the sensory explorations in the text so well. Mirella is not only an expert but a fantastic conversationalist, who takes her readers on a delightfully social journey into the world of beer. Highly recommended!

Editorial Reviews

“The book itself is a wonderful accumulation of Mirella’s learnings over the years, with the first section going in to the basics, such as the ingredients, storage, presentation, and tasting of beer. The second section features a very handy style guide, with an incredibly intriguing chapter on sour beers that is something I’ve found the general population of beer drinkers should know more about. The third section, “Diving In,” is where you put the knowledge gained from the previous sections to the test, focusing on pairing beer with food, creating beer cocktails, and even hosting your own beer tasting. . . . Beerology is one of the more accessible beer appreciation guides out there, featuring a healthy dose of essential information presented in an easy-to-understand and unpretentious way that is the crux of Mirella’s own teaching style. ” —Torontoist.com"The book is easy to read, informative while being fun….This can really help you identify what you enjoy or dislike about particular styles so that you can seek out beers that you are more likely to enjoy....It is also great for someone who is trying to help a less experienced beer drinker explore the world of beer." - D.C.Füd   "One of the best things about “Beerology” is the way that Amato presents beer styles. Beers are grouped by character — refreshing, mellow, striking, captivating, and brews beyond — giving novice drinkers an easy entree to comprehending the dizzying array of styles being brewed...
