Beer lovers, rejoice! There is one more book dedicated to your favourite pastime and this one has a rather lengthy but nonetheless interesting title – The Complete Beer Course: Boot Camp for Beer Geeks: From Novice to Expert in Twelve Tasting Classes. Written by beer expert Joshua M. Bernstein and published by Sterling Epicure, this 320-page-long guide for beer novices and seasoned beer drinkers alike covers a wide variety of beer-related subjects from history of beer and beer types to a detailed explanation of specific types of hops and even a term glossary.
With this book, the author, who is a beer journalist and a contributing editor to the drinks magazine Imbibe, takes the reader through a twelve-part course (or as he calls it “a boot camp”) covering typical styles and niche varieties of beer, tasting suggestions, and visionary breweries in a very witty yet informative manner. To quote the inside flap of the book
“Joshua M. Bernstein demystifies beer by elementally breaking down the grains, yeast, hops, and techniques that cause beer’s flavor to spin into thousands of distinctively delicious directions.”
The illustrations in The Complete Beer Course: Boot Camp for Beer Geeks: From Novice to Expert in Twelve Tasting Classes are luxurious and lavish. The book covers every and any beer – from obscure beers like gose (a salty, German style beer) and sour ales to pale lagers, Irish dry stouts, dark lagers, barley wines and Belgian-style abbeys. Bernstein also advises you what beer goes with what food and even how to create your very own beer cellar.
