The Definitive Guide to Tasting and Brewing the World's Most Popular Beer Styles
Hardcover ISBN: 0760352151
In craft beer’s early days, flavorful ales offered a stark contrast to the bland, mass-produced lagers that came to dominate the American beer market. But even as ales have driven craft beer growth, lager remains culturally entrenched as a synonym for beer. Quality craft lagers have largely escaped public acknowledgement...until now. Today, a lager renaissance is underway in the United States and abroad; intrepid breweries are rediscovering the joys of colder fermentation and pushing lagers well beyond the realm of pilsner. Lager offers a complete tasting guide to the full spectrum of lager styles, from Munich Helles and Festbier to California Common and Baltic Porter. Taste along and find your new favorite lager! This book also answers such historical and contextual questions as: -Why does lager, not ale, dominate world beer production, despite its comparative difficulty to produce? -Why are certain European styles like Vienna lager more associated with brewing in Mexico than on the Continent? -What does St. Louis have to do with Ceské Budejovice? -What role does lager play in today's expanding craft beer landscape? -How are US craft brewers pushing lagers beyond their traditional German and Czech archetypes? For homebrewers, Lager includes key brewing considerations as well as a selection of lager recipes.
Bottling Success at the Brooklyn Brewery
Paperback ISBN: 0470068671
What do you get when you cross a journalist and a banker? A brewery, of course. "A great city should have great beer. New York finally has, thanks to Brooklyn. Steve Hindy and Tom Potter provided it. Beer School explains how they did it: their mistakes as well as their triumphs. Steve writes with a journalist's skepticism-as though he has forgotten that he is reporting on himself. Tom is even less forgiving-he's a banker, after all. The inside story reads at times like a cautionary tale, but it is an account of a great and welcome achievement." —Michael Jackson, The Beer Hunter(r) "An accessible and insightful case study with terrific insight for aspiring entrepreneurs. And if that's not enough, it is all about beer!" —Professor Murray Low, Executive Director, Lang Center for Entrepreneurship, Columbia Business School "Great lessons on what every first-time entrepreneur will experience. Being down the block from the Brooklyn Brewery, I had firsthand witness to their positive impact on our community. I give Steve and Tom's book an A++!" —Norm Brodsky, Senior Contributing Editor, Inc. magazine "Beer School is a useful and entertaining book. In essence, this is the story of starting a beer business from scratch in New York City. The product is one readers can relate to, and the market is as tough as they get. What a fun challenge! The book can help not only those entrepreneurs who are starting a business but also those trying to grow one once it is established. Steve and Tom write with enthusiasm and insight about building their business. It is clear that they learned a lot along the way. Readers can learn from these lessons too." —Michael Preston, Adjunct Professor, Lang Center for Entrepreneurship, Columbia Business School, and coauthor, The Road to Success: How to Manage Growth "Although we (thankfully!) never had to deal with the Mob, being held up at gunpoint, or having our beer and equipment ripped off, we definitely identified with the challenges faced in those early days of cobbling a brewery together. The revealing story Steve and Tom tell about two partners entering a business out of passion, in an industry they knew little about, being seriously undercapitalized, with an overly naive business plan, and their ultimate success, is an inspiring tale." —Ken Grossman, founder, Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.
