Now in paperback! Every year, Americans consume more than 12 times more beer than wine, yet most are only familiar with mass-market beer--they've never tasted the real thing. Traditional beer is an affordable luxury that can transform everyday meals from dull to extraordinary.
Garrett Oliver, Brewmaster of the Brooklyn Brewery, leads readers through the amazing range of flavors displayed by the dozens of distinct styles of beer from around the world. Most importantly, he shows how beer, which is far more versatile than wine, intensifies flavors when it is appropriately paired with foods, to create dining experiences most people have never imagined.
The Brewmaster's Table is entertainingly written by America's foremost authority on beer and lushly illustrated with Denton Tillman's gorgeous photographs of the world's finest breweries, their excellent beers, and the people who produce them. The right beer is a perfect partner to any dining experience, at your kitchen table or in a four-star restaurant.
