Description
This book takes you around the world in search of the great beers and provides a fascinating insight into the history of the world's major beer styles and the different brewing methods that created them. Each beer is discussed, the taste is described and, best of all, a recipe provided, chosen to represent a particular style. (For example, Lowenbrau is chosen to represent a Bavarian lager.) The recipes do not try to replicate a particular brand but show you how to brew in the general style of a country or area -- allowing you to learn and experiment until you create a beer to your taste. Beers selected for the book are widely available all over the world and recipes include: German Pilsner - North European Pilsner - Helles Bock - American/Canadian Light - American Premium - New Zealand Premium - Australian Standard - English Pale and Dark Bitters - Special Bitters - Brown Ale - English Mild Irish Red Ale - Scottish Heavy Pale Ale - Stout - Australian Sparkling - Belgian Trappist - Bavarian Weizen Great Beers of the World has the latest information on beer and brewing -- including brewing equipment -- and is a valuable book for both beginners and experienced brewers, with clearly written, easy-to-follow instructions. It is essential reading for all lovers of beer.
