Beer is now brewed in a dizzying variety of styles, which can be enjoyed like never before. Let's drink in this diversity with a new appreciation for the complexity and rich spirit of beer.
Open this book and enjoy a series of guided tastings of more than 50 different beer styles, from smoked dark lagers and acid-fermented wild ales to triple green-hopped IPAs and barley wines matured in barrels. With each tasting, you will learn to identify how aroma, taste, texture and finish combine to create the distinctive flavor profile of a particular beer style. You'll learn about the unique ingredients and aspects of the brewing process that combine to produce each style, while quick reviews of the best examples from around the world will inspire you to explore further.
To help you establish your beer palate, the course begins with a solid foundation in the range of beer flavors and the art of detecting them - opening your nose, mind and throat to the full sensory experience flavor and pouring the perfect glass!
Travel through time and the world to understand the history of beer, its heritage and innovation. Also learn how to pair beer with food and how to cook with beer. In the end, you always come back to what really matters: that miraculous glass of cold, liquid joy.
