Overview

Fine wine has always had its expert guides to taste and terroir. Why not beer? Funky, young, and smart, this is the ultimate beer geek's companion, covering everything from the homebrew renaissance to nanobreweries to many of America's preeminent beer events and festivals.
 
There's a revolution brewing among craft beer makers: They're reviving long-forgotten recipes, dosing brews with wild yeasts to create new flavors, and using organic grains and hops to forge a delicious new frontier of beer. And no one's better equipped to tell us what's happening than Joshua M. Bernstein, former Gourmet.com writer and one of the world's foremost beer experts.  He covers all of today's top trends, including high-alcohol, bourbon barrel-aged, cask-conditioned, and even gluten-free beers.
 
Designed to look just like Joshua's notebook and featuring labels and photos, this extreme guide is a one-stop shop for cutting-edge beer technology, taste, and information.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Praise for Brewed Awakening:

“Joshua M. Bernstein's Brewed Awakening shines a spotlight on the variety, ingenuity, and innovation that is alive and well in the beer community. Over the past decade, the collective renaissance of beer and brewing has proven that this is the best time in history to be a beer drinker. Brewed Awakening is a great look behind the curtain of the beers that are making this revolution so great.” —Ken Grossman, Founder, Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.
 
Brewed Awakening does an excellent job of immersing the reader right into the heart of what craft beer is all about. Hardcore beer geeks and newcomers to the craft beer revolution alike will find a wealth of fascinating, and fascinatingly cool, information on every page.” —Greg Koch, CEO and cofounder, Stone Brewing Co.
 
Brewed Awakening has something for every beer lover, but I think it is most ideal for upping the beer IQ of those just entering our ranks. It demystifies the brewing process and the international craft brewing movement.” —Sam Calagione, president and founder, Dogfish Head Craft Brewery

Library Journal
The craft beer movement continues to thrive, and well-known beer writer and columnist Bernstein does a great job documenting some of its recent history and trends. This book is a nice mix of background information about beer and brewing as well as updates on the newer directions of the industry—e.g., chapters on eco-consciousness in brewing, bringing back forgotten beer styles and types, seasonal brews (an old idea coming back in vogue), new ways to package craft beers including (gasp) in cans, and home brewing, the ultimate craft beer. The book is conversational in tone and easy to read with an eye-catching layout styled as a notebook (complete with tasting notes and photos) and lists of beers to try at the end of each chapter. VERDICT Consumers are moving beyond the mainstream bottlers, and this is a fun read on a topic many would like to know more about. Recommended.—Susan Hurst, Miami Univ. of Ohio Libs., Oxford
