Yet Another Aspect of Lynn Hoffman
For those readers who had the pleasure of Lynn Hoffman's literary prowess he so amply demonstrated in his novel 'bang BANG', the 'readability ' of THE SHORT COURSE IN BEER' will come as no surprise. A few years back Hoffman took us through the history and the culture of wine in his acclaimed 'THE NEW SHORT COURSE IN WINE', taking us on a trip through the intricacies of wine production to wine tasting. In his current release he adds even more humor to his well-documented study of the art of respecting and enjoying beer. Not only is he able to almost make us taste his words and descriptions, he also provides us with enough background in the history of beer with both photographs and appendices that will make even the most doubting imbiber want to approach the beer bar! This is a great little book both for being entertained while being informed and as a perfect bread and butter gift for leaving on the coffee tables when invited to visit special friends. Whoever knew there was so much to learn - so comfortably - about BEER?Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
