Alworth goes into his usual detail on beer styles, shattering myths along the way, and then shows you how to brew the kind of beer you were just reading about. History and beer recipes, the perfect combination.

Best brewing book I've read for taking the next step from amateur home brewing to a more serious pursuit. By diving deep into various tradition styles, you learn a ton about specific techniques.

Very well written and a book that I will certainly revisi
