5.0 out of 5 stars A must have for serious brewers, Feb. 29 2012
This is an excellent book for those who have started all-grain brewing and are looking to up their knowledge. I have a dozen books on brewing, but this is the first I have found that really focuses on the advanced brewer.

The information is the opinion of the author, but there are tidbits and ideas in this book you will be hard pressed to find anywhere else. This shouldn't be your first book on homebrewing, but belongs on the serious brewers shelf, next to "Brewing Classic Styles", Palmers "How to Brew", and "designing Great Beers".

When you are ready to perfect your style, this is a book you will want on hand!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book, good coverage of essentials, April 8 2010
This is a good book for those interested in the history of beers, or those with some basic brewing knowledge who want to learn more.

The book is not a recipe book, if that's what you're looking for, but does go into detail about style guides and each styles history. It also covers ingredient trends in the NHC (National Homebrew Competition) in the US, although from a few years back. It would be nice to see a new addition to update that info.

All in all I'm glad I've got this book - and I would definitely recommend it for those brewers who plan to put their beer into competition, or for those who just love a little history and want to know more about the hobby!
