Beer in the News, Books About Beer

From WCIA, CBS 3.

Page Turners: Books About Beers

Ryan Franklin from Mattoon Public Library mentions a few books about beer.

Pints and Purls - Portable Projects for the Social Knitter, Karida Collins and Liby Bruce

B is for Beer, Tom Robbins

The Short Course in Beer, L.F. Hoffman

The Gourmet's Guide to Cooking with Beer, Alison Boteler

1001 Beers You Must Taste Before You Die, Adrian Tierney-Jones

Rob seems really interested in beer, Andy should invite him to Beer Class at Seven Saints on Thursdays at 9:30.

Books I would recommend about beer are:

Ultimate Beer, Michael Jackson (not that Michael Jackson)

The Brewmaster's Table: Discovering the Pleasures of Real Beer with Real Food, Garrett Oliver

The entire line of the Classic Beer Styles Series, if someone wants to buy me Lambic, I'd be very thankful. I have #1, Pale Ale, and #8 Scotch. Others in the series are Continental Pilsner; Oktoberfest/Vienna/Marzen; Porter; Belgian Ale; German Wheat; Bock; Stout; Barleywine; Altbier; kolsch; Brown; Mild Ale; Bavarian Lager; and Smoked. Most are available on Amazon. (Apparently there's also a Bavarian Helles)

If you want a list of beer books I don't recommend, I can give that to you too.
