about

Explore Local Flavor Using Cultivated and Foraged IngredientsAmericans have brewed beers using native ingredients since pre-Columbian times, and a new wave of brewers has always been at the forefront of the locavore movement. These days they use not only both locally-grown, traditional ingredients, but cultivated and foraged flora to produce beers that capture the essence of the place they were made. In Brewing Local Stan Hieronymus examines the history of how distinctly American beers came about, visits farm breweries, and goes foraging for both plants and yeast to discover how brewers are using ingredients to create unique beers. The book introduces brewers and drinkers to how herbs, flowers, plants, trees, nuts, and shrubs flavor unique beers.Endorsements:No one writing about beer brings as much insight, detail, or revelation to the subject as Stan Hieronymus, and Brewing Local may be his best work to date. Ostensibly directed at brewers looking to bring a little local flair into their beer (which it delivers, in spades), it accomplishes something more profound. By connecting beer to place and time, Hieronymus reintroduces us to this beverage we think we know so well. It's one of the few books with the capacity to make you think anew about beer.Jeff Alworth, Author of The Beer BibleYou could be happy just buying it [Brewing Local] for the valuable information on a wide range of unusual botanicals and how to use them in beer. But once you start reading, you get swept away on an unexpected journey, ultimately ending up deep inside the minds of people doing some of the most exciting things in beer today.Randy Mosher, Author of Tasting Beer
