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
