From the Publisher

San Diego Union Tribune’s beer blog “Brewery Rowe” July, 2010

Tasting Table Brew Gurus, Oct 14,2010
“…a beer history, primer and directory in one.”

GREAT AMERICAN CRAFT BEER by Andy Crouch -- one of “Six Must-Reads for a Great Year of Beer”.

Library Journal
Crouch, who has written on beer regionally in The Good Beer Guide to New England, presents an accessible book on craft beer in America. Similar to Timothy Harper's The Good Beer Book and Ben Myers' Best American Beers, Crouch's book gives the beer enthusiast a history of beer as well as a grounding in beer brewing and styles. Rather than an exhaustive treatment, this is a guide to available beer styles via a selection of choice examples of each. In an easy manner, Crouch discusses each beer, noting the flavor accents, color, aroma, and feel. He also includes a list of great beer bars and tips on beer selection.Verdict In recent years, beer in America has become more diversified as the craft beer movement has gained momentum, and Crouch gives the beer lover great suggestions to explore.—Ginny Wolter, Toledo-Lucas Cty.
