brewed awakening. so far so good.
Brewing Up a Business by Sam Calagione. Part beer book, part business book, part motivational book. a good and interesting read so far.
Reading BJCP guidelines for class during the day.
At bedtime I read old Fabio novels, 50 shades of Grey and a random Dr. Seuss masterpiece. (Preparing for Gang Bang BIF Round 3)
Finally finished the Oxford Companion a few days ago - waiting for The Lagunitas Story by Tony Magee to be delivered.
The Complete Joy of Homebrewing. About to try my first batch. Fingers crossed...
Craft Beer Bar Mitzvah. The story about Shmaltz Brewing. Interesting, funny and a good story about the problems and milestones of starting a business.
I'm going with tasting beer, brewing up a small business, the home brewers companion, Oxford, and brewmasters table while studying for the certified cicerone exam and the BJCP exams
Ashville Beer by Anne Fitten Glenn. Pretty decent thusfar, and explains the Ashville boom as of late.
Just finished The Lagunitas Story, by Tony Magee. Very enjoyable read. Substantial parts of it are more like a primer on how to manage and grow a small business. The Lagunitas anecdotes are well worth it.
I got Tasting Beer, by Mosher last Christmas. Excellent work, and one I refer back to frequently.
I might have to check this one out next! The Asheville area is awesome!
Drinking with George is a great book, it is by George Wendt who played Norm on Cheers. I met him at a local craft beer night a year or so ago and got a signed copy while he was promoting his book. I do not think I have ever read a book faster. Great read an highly recommended!
The Brewmaster's Table by Garrett Oliver of Brooklyn Brewery. Great book on Beer/Food pairing.
I agree that was a good read. Great stories about his early career.
Wild Brews by Jeff Sparrow
Re-reading 'Great Beers of Belgium' and ' Good Beer Guide to Belgium' in preparation for my trip in April.
Working on "The World Atlas of Beer" by Tim Webb and Stephen Beaumont. Awesome gift from my brother! I should be done with it by tomorrow. I grabbed "The Beer Book" by Tim Hampson and "Barley Wine: History, Brewing Techniques and Recipes" by Dick Cantwell from the library, and I am waiting on Michael Jackson's "Great Beers of Belgium" to come in the mail. I am also thinking of buying "IPA: Brewing Techniques, Recipes and the Evolution of India Pale Ale" by Mitch Steele since from what I have heard it is suppose to be very well written and packed with information. I love beer books.
Me too. I have a history degree. Besides beer books I am reading two books on the crusades and one on medieval society. I took a cultural history class in college that focused on the eating and drinking habits of Europeans in the middle ages through the Renaissance, and I found that subject so interesting. I also took a British empire class that focused heavily on British control of India. That was my favorite class throughout college. I watched Chris from Beer Geek Nation's review of the IPA book, and the history aspect of the book is why I want to buy it. From what I have read the Brit's were huge hop-heads.
North Carolina Craft Beer and Breweries by Erik Lars Myers. Awesome book if you are a carolinian
Plug 19th-century British recipes into Beersmith and nothing comes out under 50 IBU's. That's even when knocking down the hopping rate to acocunt for some older hops. And tht's just the Milds. Pale Ales and Strong Ales are mostly over 100 IBU's.
"Amber, Gold & Black" by Martyn Cornell. Subtitle says it all: "The History of Britain's Great Beers." A must read.
Loved the chapter on West County White Ale (Britain's lost beer style).
Farmhouse Ales by Phil Markowski.
The Brewmaster's Bible
Not a "Beer" book, per se, but "I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell" is the funniest shit I have ever read!
Pennsylvania Breweries by Lew Bryson
I just finished writing "Charlotte Beer: A History of Brewing in the Queen City." That book has taken up most of my time for the last four months or so, so now I'm ready to get back to the book I was reading prior to that, Ray Daniels' "Smoked Beers: History, Brewing Techniques, Recipes."
Yes, I have an unhealthy obsession with smoked beers.
Saw this book mentioned a couple of times in this thread, here is the full name and author if someone wants to find it. "The Complete Joy of Home Brewing" 3rd Edition (2003) is what I am reading, by Charlie Papazian
Just ordered this baby.
I am very excited to actually understand a few fundamentals regarding the making of beer.
Lost Beers and Breweries of Britain by Brian Glover.
The Craft of Stone Brewing by Koch, Wagoner and Clemens
Shakespeare's Local by Pete Brown
This one by George Fix also has some science.
I am also reading The Brewmasters Table 'discovering the pleasures of real beer with real food' by Garrett Oliver (brewmaster of the brooklyn brewery). AWESOME book loaded with all kinds of info on every major beer style, not just pairing.
The Brewmasters Table
Brew Like A Monk by Stan Hieronymus, although "The Drawing of the Dark" by Tim Powers may be the best beer story book ever.
Beer Quest West by Jon C. Scott (2011)
the craft brewers of Alberta and BC , so far an interesting read also a steal at $6
I picked this up in the bargain section a few weeks ago - it is actually a rather good read so far.
Beer and Philosophy: The Unexamined Beer is not Worth Drinking, is a fantastic book that is not totally beer centric, but enlightening.
"Designing Great Beers" was just delivered to my place this week. I've barely touched it so far though
Principles of Brewing Science: A Study of Serious Brewing Issues by George Fix
