Written by some of the greatest beer minds of modern times, these men and women took beer from a 4 letter word to a work of art that is only appreciated fully by an educated drinker. It drives my interest in the art of brewing and evaluating brews, and gave interesting insight into that lovely liquid we have come to know as beer.

May have more to say later.

I was hoping for more information on how to taste beer and various techniques for untangling and describing the multitude of aromas and flavors that I find in beer. Instead I got several essays on how important and difficult evaluating beer is.
