The number and variety of excellent beers in general circulation has never been greater, both in the pub (where guest ales and beer festivals are regular features) and in the supermarket. This book presents a crash course in beer appreciation, with short cuts to an understanding of the beer styles of the world, beer flavors, how beer is made, the ingredients, the best pubs and bars, and more. The novelty of this book--and its key point of difference with other beer titles--is that it doesn't just relate the facts but helps readers reach conclusions for themselves. Interactive tastings show readers, through their own taste-buds, what beer is all about. The book covers all the basics of beer knowledge but then points readers eager for a greater understanding toward places to visit, people to talk to and in-depth books to read.

Travels with Barley

A Journey Through Beer Culture in America

Do beer yeast rustlers really exist? Who patented the Beer Goddess? How can you tell a Beer Geek from a Beer Nazi? Where exactly is Beervana? Does Big Beer hate Little Beer? Ken Wells, a novelist, Pulitzer Prize finalist, and longtime Wall Street Journal writer, answers these questions and more by bringing a keen eye and prodigious reportage to the people and passions that have propelled beer into America's favorite alcoholic beverage and the beer industry into a $75 billion commercial juggernaut, not to mention a potent force in American culture. Travels with Barley is a lively, literate tour through the precincts of the beer makers, sellers, drinkers, and thinkers who collectively drive the mighty River of Beer onward. The heart of the book is a journey along the Mississippi River, from Minnesota to Louisiana, in a quixotic search for the Perfect Beer Joint -- a journey that turns out to be the perfect pretext for viewing America through the prism of a beer glass. Along the river, you'll visit the beer bar once owned by the brewer Al Capone, glide by The World's Largest Six Pack, and check into Elvis Presley's Heartbreak Hotel to plumb the surprisingly controversial question of whether Elvis actually drank beer. But the trip also includes numerous detours up quirky tributaries, among them: a visit to an Extreme Beer maker in Delaware with ambitions to make 50-proof brew, a look at the murky world of beer yeast rustlers in California, and a journey to the portals of ultimate beer power at the Anheuser-Busch plant in St. Louis, where making the grade as a Clydesdale draft horse is harder than you might imagine. Entertaining, enlightening, and written with Wells's trademark verve, Travels with Barley is a perfect gift -- not just for America's 84 million beer enthusiasts, but for all discerning readers of flavorful nonfiction.

Knowledge, Attitudes, and Malt Liquor Beer Drinking Behavior Among African American Men in South Central Los Angeles

Alcohol use continues to be one of the most serious and complex social and health-related problems affecting the African American community today. A review of the literature suggested that African American drink less but suffer from more negative consequences of drinking. Although African Americans are only 14% of the population, they are reported to consume 30% of malt liquor beers. Most surveys which seek to measure alcohol consumption patterns for African American men refer to questions related to mainstream alcohol types. For African American men, the literature has not addressed these phenomena nor adequately provided a culturally specific theoretical framework by which to start addressing these issues. The present study uses an Africentric perspective based on the Association of Black Psychologist Behavioral Change Model (Nobels, et.al. 1998) to provide the conceptual framework for understanding the influence that age, level of education, and employment status have on African American men's knowledge, attitudes and malt liquor beer drinking behavior.

It’s finally here—the comprehensive, authoritative book that does for beer what The Wine Bible does for wine. Written by an expert from the West Coast, where America’s craft beer movement got its start, The Beer Bible is the ultimate reader- and drinker-friendly guide to all the world’s beers. No other book of this depth and scope approaches the subject of beer?in the same way that beer lovers do—by style, just as a perfect pub menu is organized—and gets right to the pleasure of discovery, knowledge, and connoisseurship. Divided into four major families—ales, lagers, wheat beers, and tart and wild ales—there’s everything a beer drinker wants to know about the hundreds of different authentic types of brews, from bitters, bocks, and IPAs to weisses, milk stouts, lambics, and more. Each style is a chapter unto itself, delving into origins, ingredients, description and characteristics, substyles, and tasting notes, and ending with a recommended list of the beers to know in each category. Hip infographics throughout make the explanation of beer’s flavors, brewing methods, ingredients, labeling, serving, and more as immediate as it is lively. The book is written for passionate beginners, who will love its “if you like X, try Y” feature; for intermediate beer lovers eager to go deeper; and for true geeks, who will find new information on every page. History, romance, the art of tasting, backstories and anecdotes, appropriate glassware, bitterness units, mouthfeel, and more—it’s all here. Plus a primer on pairing beer and food using the three Cs— complement, contrast, or cut. It’s the book that every beer lover will read with pleasure, and use with even more.

For centuries, beer has been a favourite drink throughout the world. The art of brewing has more recently evolved into the science it is today as a result of the increased knowledge of both the ingredients and the process. Considerations such as appearance, taste and the nutritional value of beer are important topics for consumers and brewing scientists alike. This book looks at the chemistry behind those aspects of beer that are of particular interest to beer drinkers, namely flavour and nutritional aspects, in combination with a discussion of maintenance of quality and safety, the areas more relevant to the brewing scientist. Beer: Quality, Safety and Nutritional Aspects brings the reader right up to date with current thinking, and will be valued by both interested consumers and those employed in industries related to the brewing industry.

Kochen

Eine Naturgeschichte der Transformation

Wie kommen wir in unserem täglichen Leben zu einem tieferen Verständnis der Natur und der besonderen Rolle unserer Spezies darin? Am besten geht man dazu einfach in die Küche, meint Michael Pollan. Und das tut er in seinem neuen, aufregenden Buch "Kochen" und vermisst das Terrain der Küche auf ungewohnte Weise. Pollan beschäftigt sich mit den vier klassischen Elementen – Feuer, Wasser, Luft und Erde –, die das, was die Natur uns liefert, in köstliches Essen und Trinken verwandeln, und geht selbst noch einmal in die Lehre: Bei einem Barbecue-Meister lernt er die Magie des Feuers kennen; ein Chez-Panisse-Koch weist ihn in die Kunst des Schmorens ein; ein Bäcker bringt ihm bei, wie Mehl und Wasser durch Luft in duftendes Brot verwandelt werden; und die 'Fermentos', eine Gruppe verrückter Genies, zu denen ein Brauer und ein Käser gehören, zeigen ihm, wie Pilze und Bakterien eine erstaunliche Alchemie zustande bringen. In all diesen Verwandlungsprozessen nehmen die Köche eine besondere Position ein: die zwischen Natur und Kultur. Mit Pollan lernen auch die Leser, wie uns das Kochen verbindet:?mit Pflanzen und Tieren, mit der Erde und den Bauern, unserer Geschichte und Kultur und natürlich mit den Menschen, mit denen und für die wir kochen. Wenn wir die Freude am Kochen zurückgewinnen, das ist das Fazit dieses wunderbaren Buchs, öffnet sich die Tür zu einem reicheren Leben.
