About the Book

Beer lovers of the world, rejoice! Introducing THE BEER BIBLEthe result of years of research spanning over 17,000 miles, six countries, and 52 breweriesFrom the publisher of The Wine Biblethis is the first truly comprehensive, style-by-style guide to the beers of the worldComplete with detailed photographs, maps, infographics, and lively writing, THE BEER BIBLE will fascinate and educate every reader, whether new to the subject or a longtime beer enthusiast. 

THE BEER BIBLE (Workman, August 2015) by Jeff Alworth spans the globe from Germany to America, Japan to Scotland, and is a celebration of culture as much as it is a celebration of beer itself. At just under 700 pages, chapters deliver:

·         The four beer families—ales, lagers, wheat beers, and tart and wild ales—each with in-depth profiles of more than 100 styles, from IPA to lambic, porter to pilsner, sahti to saison.
·         An engaging narrative format that tells the story of each beer: the influences of geography and history, the little-known lore and amusing anecdotes, the ingredients and flavors, and the brews to try.
·         A helpful “if you like X, try Y” feature that directs you to new beer discoveries based on your preferences.
·         Infographics to explain and illustrate essential beer knowledge: the brewing process, appropriate glassware for each beer, how to decipher a label, how to say “Cheers!” in various languages, and more.
·         A primer on food pairings that includes the “three Cs”—complement, contrast, or cut.
·         A guide to beer tourism, including global pub culture (and the best way to order another round in Germany) and must-visit breweries and beer festivals around the world.
·         Virtual tours of 18 of the world’s most fascinating, innovative, and storied breweries.

Beer is the most widely consumed alcoholic beverage on the planet. It’s brewed in nearly every part of the globe, on both a large and small scale, industrially and at home, and it has been made in some form or another since the dawn of civilization. And now there’s a guide to help you navigate it all!
