Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"An engaging look at American craft beer through the eyes of a working chef. It's enthusiastic, opinionated, and analytical, teasing apart the mechanics of flavor combinations and then layering on recipes, brewery stories, interviews, tasting notes, beer dinner menus, and even a useful guide to cheese. If you want to know how to bring craft beer into your culinary life, this book will take you all the way there."
—Garrett Oliver, brewmaster of The Brooklyn Brewery, author of The Brewmaster's Table, and editor in chief of The Oxford Companion to Beer

"The real gold is chapter 2, where Schultz navigates complementary and contrasting pairings, menu-building and choosing beer with food in mind (and vice versa) by channeling focus elements of each. Behind the casual guidance is the refreshingly unsnobby mantra that while it's pretty tough to really go wrong with beer/food pairing, you can always do better. Classic dishes and widely available beer suggestions make the whole thesis tangible." —Draft Magazine

"If all you do is read the 'Beer and Cheese' chapter in Schuyler Schultz's Beer, Food, and Flavor, you've gotten your money's worth from this thoughtful craft beer guide. . . . On either side of this practical primer, the book is filled with mini histories of American craft brewers and tasting notes on their signature beers. Schultz's descriptions are educations in themselves: '. . . the flavor consists of a crisp malt core surrounded by mild earth and spice hops characteristics with inflections of orange peel and a mild, pleasant graininess.' We'll drink to that." —Culture Cheese Magazine

"A wonderful introduction to the world of American craft beer and its place in our nation's exciting local food movement. Schuyler Schultz brings a chef's palate, imagination, and vocabulary to the subject in ways that will expand your appreciation and knowledge of beer's place at the table."
—Steve Hindy, co-founder and president of The Brooklyn Brewery

    Mediocre but useful

    I bought this book because I wanted to learn about beer and food pairing for a potential job promotion that involved creating beer dinners. The first four chapters were extremely useful involving photos, example menus, and explanations of why certain flavors pair well or don't. The entire rest of the book was essentially a list of beers, breweries, and stories the author personally enjoyed, but that had nothing to do with learning how to pair food with beer. Most of it was the author just talking about beers he liked and why they tasted good. He also provides resources for further research, which is nice. However, if you are into craft beer on even a moderate level, you'd be familiar with all of them already.
    On a side note, the fact that he basically sourced what he deemed the best examples of beer styles from about four breweries seemed kind of weird. You would think someone touting them self as an expert in beer and food pairing would provide a better scope of examples. And you know...more information on how to pair.
    Criticism aside, the book provides enough information about pairings in the beggining to warrant 3 stars. A good book for begginers, but not really for anyone already well versed in craft beer.

    Don't buy this book!!!

    Don't buy this book, from B&N!!! I saw this book at a friends place and found it be a great book. As a member, I bought this for my brother in law for Christmas about 3 1/2 weeks before. The site said it would ship within 24 hours later. The book arrived after the new year, missing Chistmas completely! I got no help from B&N customer service nor even an apology for the delay.

    I decided that since I had liked the book so much away my friends house, I decided to order one myself with a gift certificate I had received for Christmas. This time around, I was notified in my confirmation email that it would be shipped out on January 22. I had waited all day for the email letting me it has shipped. No word that day. Then the following day I received the email that it was delayed with no shop date.

    As mentioned before, DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK FROM B&N!!! Great book, horrible horrible service from B&N. I'm considering canceling my membership, as it means absolutely nothing to them. Want to stay in business, offer superb customer service and bend over backwards for your loyal customers and members!
