Reviews for In Praise of Beer

If you are expecting a placid trip through beer styles, a little bit of history, some technical info, and some flavor profiles, it's time to buckle up and get ready for a wild ride. Bamforth delivers the goods as always, but leavened by wry humor, hard-won experience, a whiff of carnality and more than a little love. You could scarcely ask for a better guide to what beer is, what it tastes like, and, importantly, what it means. -- Garrett Oliver, Brewmaster at The Brooklyn Brewery and editor of The Oxford Companion to Beer Delightful reading: surprising personal stories and relevant statements everyone should consider when talking about beer! Bamforth's work was enough to earn him a reputation as one of the most renowned brewing science Professors, but this book explains why the B in Beer, apart from its origins in Brewing, also has something to do with Bamforth! -- Tiago Brandao, European Brewing Convention and the Super Bock Group Bamforth, like no other, understands how to impart brewing knowledge in an instructive and entertaining way. It doesn't matter whether his readers are professionals or consumers interested in beer and brewing. What you always wanted to know about beer and beer brewing - here you will find the answers - anything but dry. A real must-read! -- Lydia Junkersfeld, Editor-in-Chief of BRAUWELT International and Brewing Science
