For everyone who has known the pleasure of a pint, Randy Mosher explores and explains the tasting experience, guiding readers to a better understanding of how every batch of beer is affected by recipe formulation, brewhouse procedures, yeasts, fermentations, carbonation, filtration, packaging, and much more. Readers will learn to identify the scents, colors, flavors, and mouth-feel of all the major beer styles. There are also chapters on proper serving and storage conditions, and classic beer and food pairings. Finally, the book includes a style-by-style compendium of the different brews within major beer families, including American craft brews, British lagers, German ales, and Belgian Dubbels. For each style, Mosher includes historical and regional facts, taste and aroma characteristics, seasonal availability, food pairings, and a few terrific recommendations for readers to sample.

This book will teach you more than you will ever want to know about beer from the different types, the types of grain, hops, yeast, etc. the brewing process, the measures of weight, colour, taste, etc. There is a great deal on the science of brewing, but there is also a lot on the enjoyment of beer and pairing the different types with different types of food.

The only downside is that reading the book makes you thirsty.

Really unique read. By the measure of how good a book is by how much it changes your behavior, I would give this book highest marks. A revelation.
