Principles of Brewing Science: A Study of Serious Brewing Issues by George Fix
The World Atlas of Beer by Tim Webb and Stephen Beaumont
Loving this book, what a great sense of humor and purpose.
Just downloaded The Complete Joy of Homebrewing (3rd ed.) by Charlie Papazian to my iPad.
I received this for Christmas...Very cool book!!!
Steele's IPA book. Though been flipping through Daniel's Designing Great Beers for some recipe questions, and The Oxford Companion to beer for a project I'm working on.
Re-reading Michael Jackson's Great Beers of Belgium. Got a bunch of beer books for xmas and I'm finally getting around to going through this one and highlighting places I've been and places I need to get to on my next trip.
Economics of Beer by JM Swinnen
I am about half way through your book. Started reading it today, good stuff.
by the way, it was good meeting you the other day at the brewery, always good to put a face to a name.
Thank you very much! It was great meeting you as well. I'm sure I'll see you around town again soon!
I'm reading the Hieronymus book right now. Lots of great nuggets of info, facts, homebrewer myth busting, brewer methods,etc. but its kind of disjointed in its flow of info so kind of hard to digest it all. The mitch steele book will be next for me.
I need to get this one next, tried to find a digital version but couldn't on amazon. I've enjoyed having the digital version of Tasting Beer as it allows me to have it on me all time and I've been able to do quick searches for key words on my phone or iPad.
Glad to see this thread is still going!
I need to get back into reading up more on BEER!
Currently half way through this, not totally about beer. If you like either
travel/hiking/outdoors, golf, Ireland, history, or beer this is fun!
Just found (and ordered) them on Amazon, thanks for the recommendation.
I just finished Last Call by Daniel Okrent, a history of Prohibition.
'Lagunitus The Story' (so you want to start a brewery) by Tony Magee.....
Great book.....diggin' it.
Just finished "Wild Brews". Excellent book and a wealth of knowledge toward Cicerone. Starting "Designing Great Beer" next
Tasting Beer by Randy Mosher
Oxford Companion to Beer - Garrett Oliver
and The Brewmaster's Table - Garrett Oliver
on a weekly rotation
Just finished 'Craft Beer Revolution' by Joe Wiebe the thirsty writer , (http://www.thirstywriter.com/)
a insider's guide to BC Breweries , a good read for those intrested in BC craft beer
I'm rereading 'cellarmanship' by Patrick O'Neill; again. Time to put some beer in casks.
Just finished The Audacity of Hops by Tom Acitelli, a rather new book about the history of the craft beer industry. Highly recommended.
1,000 beers you must taste before you die.
On my bedside table; it's a light read so I can hammer out a couple a night.
Brewing Up A Business
I am rereading For the Love of Hops.
Government Intervention in the Brewing Industry.
Also reading Tasting Beer by Randy Mosher... really helped w/ Cicerone (Level 1). Next up, the Audacity of Hops: the History of America's Craft Beer Revolution by Tom Acitelli. I read an excerpt in a magazine and really enjoyed it.
I just ordered this from amazon a day or two ago. Looking forward to it.
(doh) I need to get back to my goal of having a beer book going all the time in addition to my regualr reading.
The part I read was very focused on Anchor Steam/ Sierra Nevada, etc. My only hope is that CA is not the entire focus of the book. I'd like to see the North-North-West and North-East get some love too.
Obviously I haven't read it yet as I just ordered it, but it doesn't seem to be the case. It worries me to be honest, as I have a book covering similar (not the exact same though) topics coming out next year. His seems to be focused more on the history while mine focuses on the present, but like I said - I haven't read this yet. Still very excited to get my copy of Acitelli's book though.
I find all the craft beer books to be an interesting phenomenon, as it must be most difficult to write and release a relevant book, in a timely enough fashion, that can keep up with the pace of growth (and sometimes failure) in the industry.
May I ask what the topic of your book is? And best of luck!
Oxford Companion to Beer, different subjects.
You won't be disappointed- he does a good job of covering the nation. Many short little chapters/stories make it hard to put down.
Tasting Beer by Randy Mosher. Semi-thinking about doing the Certified Beer Server exam in the coming months. Maybe, maybe not. Definitely lots of good information.
I've been on How to Brew for the past four months. The Brewmaster's Table is another one that has been sitting on my coffee table for quite awhile now. I enjoy reading it but it is a lot of information to take in.
