    This review is from: The Ultimate Beer Lover’s Cookbook: More Than 400 Recipes (Hardcover)

    This book seems to be little more than a collection of newspaper recipes that only peripherally include “beer” as an ingredient. You could just as easily substitute “chicken stock” or “yellow water” and achieve the same results–an indication of the lack of effort that went into the writing of this cookbook.

    Truly galling for anybody who knows anything about beer (beyond Bud, Miller, and Coors) is that there is not even the slightest effort to differentiate between styles, and anybody who knows the slightest about beer and cooking will tell you adding a pale ale to a recipe will yield wildly different results than a stout, Belgian ale, or porter.

    Simply put, this book is an insult to beer advocates as well as serious cooks.

    [And don't get me started on the "comprehensive collection of recipes for mixed drinks, chuggers, shots, chasers, party punches, milkshakes, and flaming drinks -- all made with beer." What an absolute travesty.]

    Ignore the five-star reviews from friends and family members, publisher’s shills, and reviewers who got a free book. Poor editing, chintzy production values (no photos or illustrations to speak of), and some really dubious printing quality all suggest this book was done on the cheap to exploit beer connoisseurs’ desire for a decent cooking-with-beer title. Trust me, this isn’t one of them.

    As “fair deal guy BB” stated in another review, this book does not do justice to anyone who enjoys cooking, enjoys beer, and would like to be able to enhance food with beer and vice versa. I really thought that beer was beyond this – many chefs at fine restaurants have started taking beer more seriously and have given it the same considerations in their dishes and for pairing as they do wine. Mr. Schlimm is obviously not a fan of this level of appreciation of beer. The recipes include beer as an after thought, with no thought put into which style would work best with each dish. A couple of recipes indicate “light beer”, but everything else is just “beer”. At least the most basic recipes including wine indicate “white” or “red”. Couldn’t these recipes have been tested and given to us with an “ale” or “lager” determination?

    In a nutshell, nearly 1/2 of these recipes involve beer only to batter and fry. Who needs a cookbook for that? Most of the remaining recipes have simply swapped beer with another liquid, such as water or broth. Nothing here screams original or makes me think that I must try it now.
