Sharing a beer or two with friends after work or play is one of life's many joys. Session beers, whose mild strength invites more than one round, adhere to high quality standards and are dedicated to balance and drinkability above all.

Responsible consumption of these high-quality, easy-drinking beers gives beer lovers the freedom to celebrate community and friendship while consuming less alcohol. Such beers can be challenging to brew, but they present many opportunities to showcase skill, flavor, and refreshment. Session Beers explores the history behind some of the world's greatest session beers, past and present. Learn about the brewing processes and ingredients to master recipe development. Explore popular craft session beer recipes from some of the best brewmasters in America, and discover why beer drinkers enjoy exploring and drinking session beers.
Mad Science in the Pursuit of Great Beer
Author: Drew Beechum,Denny Conn
Publisher: Voyageur Press (MN)
Take your brewing to the next level. They say that a meal tastes better if you make it yourself—that you can taste the preparation, labor, and care put into the final dish. It's often the same for home-brewed beer; perhaps nothing on this earth tastes more sublime than that first victorious sip of basement ale. But eventually, as your skills improve and the difficult becomes easy, something nasty happens: you get bored. Luckily, if you're a bored brewer, Experimental Homebrewing was written for you. Inside, authors and brewmasters Drew Beechum and Denny Conn don't waste their time describing what malted barley is or how to use a hydrometer. Instead, they demonstrate how the scientific method can empower you to break the established rules of homebrewing in order to create new, unique beers all your own, using cheap and common equipment to your advantage. In addition to explaining special considerations for experimental homebrewing (such as recipe design and small-batch brewing), Beechum and Conn guide you through your first experiments before delving into ways you can deviate from the norm during boiling, fermentation, bottling, and kegging—and even in the glass. Of course, the book wouldn't be complete without a rundown of unconventional ingredients, including flowers, cacao nibs, chili, seaweed, chicory, peppermint, and more. So whether you're into IPAs, Belgians, porters, stouts, wheats, or all of the above, Experimental Homebrewing enables you to venture forth into a world of homebrewing possibilities you never thought possible.

Bottling Success at the Brooklyn Brewery
Author: Steve Hindy,Tom Potter
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
Category: Business & Economics
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.

As a fuel, biodiesel is attractive for many reasons. It can be made using a variety of local resources on a small scale. Biodiesel supports local farms and economies and plays a part in community building. It may be made using renewable resources, making it an environmentally preferable alternative fuel. Yet, there are challenges biodiesel producers, regulators, resellers, and others must face. This revealing book introduces some of those challenges, focusing specifically on small-scale producers, who often face several regulatory, safety, and waste disposal challenges. The text discusses issues of quality, safety, storage, waste disposal, regulation, and cooperative politics. It touches upon biodiesel production around the world, examining some of the incentives, markets, production, and oilseed feedstock used in other countries. Also discussed are some of the environmental and social justice issues that are arising due to the non-sustainable production of biodiesel feedstock.

Winner of 2014 U.S. Gourmand Drinks Award • Taste 5,000 years of brewing history as a time-traveling homebrewer rediscovers and re-creates the great beers of the past. The Brewer’s Tale is a beer-filled journey into the past: the story of brewers gone by and one brave writer’s quest to bring them—and their ancient, forgotten beers—back to life, one taste at a time. This is the story of the world according to beer, a toast to flavors born of necessity and place—in Belgian monasteries, rundown farmhouses, and the basement nanobrewery next door. So pull up a barstool and raise a glass to 5,000 years of fermented magic. Fueled by date-and-honey gruel, sour pediococcus-laced lambics, and all manner of beers between, William Bostwick’s rollicking quest for the drink’s origins takes him into the redwood forests of Sonoma County, to bullet-riddled South Boston brewpubs, and across the Atlantic, from Mesopotamian sands to medieval monasteries to British brewing factories. Bostwick compares notes with the Mt. Vernon historian in charge of preserving George Washington’s molasses-based home brew, and he finds the ancestor of today’s macrobrewed lagers in a nineteenth-century spy’s hollowed-out walking stick. Wrapped around this modern reportage are deeply informed tales of history’s archetypal brewers: Babylonian temple workers, Nordic shamans, patriots, rebels, and monks. The Brewer’s Tale unfurls from the ancient goddess Ninkasi, ruler of intoxication, to the cryptic beer hymns of the Rig Veda and down into the clove-scented treasure holds of India-bound sailing ships. With each discovery comes Bostwick’s own turn at the brew pot, an exercise that honors the audacity and experimentation of the craft. A sticky English porter, a pricelessly rare Belgian, and a sacred, shamanic wormwood-tinged gruit each offer humble communion with the brewers of yore. From sickly sweet Nordic grogs to industrially fine-tuned fizzy lager, Bostwick’s journey into brewing history ultimately arrives at the head of the modern craft beer movement and gazes eagerly if a bit blurry-eyed toward the future of beer.
