    Great gift for beer drinkers of all levels of experience!, January 28, 2011

    This review is from: Great American Craft Beer: A Guide to the Nation’s Finest Beers and Breweries (Hardcover)

    I found this to be a very useful tasting guide to many great beers that I’ve either already tried or now would like to try.

    My favorite part is that the tasting notes are arranged by flavor and not by style, as with my other beer books. For a long time I’ve written off certain entire styles, thinking I just didn’t like stouts or porters. This book helped me define what it is specifically that I don’t care for (yuck, roasted flavors!) and helped me pick out beers within those styles that I actually quite enjoy. The section with the tasting notes is large and you might not need to read it all in one sitting from start to finish, but I found it useful to just pick out whatever flavor I happen to have a taste for and use it one section at a time.

    I like that it includes breweries from all over the USA and not just large brands that every beer enthusiast with a passing interest has already had. Although you might be sad if your personal favorite wasn’t included, this book has inspired me to try some brands I hadn’t ever heard of before, to my pleasant surprise. I’d always thought that since I live in an area that gets so many great beer brands, if I hadn’t heard of it, it must not be good. Wrong! After reading some of the reviews that sounded like a particular beer might be right up my alley I’ve had a fun time seeking out those beers while traveling elsewhere or at beer festivals. I liked that this book showed me new things to try, and didn’t just tell me that what I already think is awesome is awesome.

    I haven’t tried any of the recipes yet, but look forward to cooking up my own beer cuisine soon. I’ve heard good things about the chefs who came up with them, and the recipes look promising.

    This book is a good addition to my beer library, and also a good gift for folks who are already beer fans as well as those who might be just getting their feet wet. I’ve given it to several people of varied levels of beer interest, and they’ve all enjoyed it.

    My husband, an avid craft beer drinker and home brewer, really enjoyed this book. First heard about it on The Splendid Table.

    The book was received earlier than expected. From what I saw it made my son-law very happy! The book contained a wealth of beer knowledge.
