"The only book you need to understand the worlds most popular beverage. I swear on a stack of these, its a thumping good read."--John Holl, editor of All About Beer Magazine and author of The American Craft Beer Cookbook

Imagine sitting in your favorite pub with a friend who happens to be a world-class expert on beer. Thats this book.

It covers the history: how we got from gruel-beer to black IPA in 10,000 years. The alchemy: malts, grains, and the miracle of hops. The variety: dozens of styles and hundreds of recommended brews (including suggestions based on your taste preferences), divided into four sections--Ales, Wheat Beers, Lagers, and Tart and Wild Ales--and all described in mouthwatering detail. The curiosity: how to read a Belgian label; the talk of two Budweisers; porter, the first superstyle; and what, exactly, a lager is. The pleasure. Because you dont merely taste beer, you experience it.

Winner of a 2016 IACP Award

"Covers a lot of ground, from beer styles and brewing methods to drinking culture past and present. Theres something for beer novices and beer geeks alike."--Ken Grossman, founder, Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.

"Erudite, encyclopedic, and enormously entertaining arent words you normally associate with beer, but The Beer Bible is no ordinary beer book. As scinitillating, diverse, and refreshing as mans oldest alcoholic beverage itself."--Steve Raichlen, author of Project Smoke and How to Grill
