Product description


“The book itself is a wonderful accumulation of Mirella’s learnings over the years, with the first section going in to the basics, such as the ingredients, storage, presentation, and tasting of beer. The second section features a very handy style guide, with an incredibly intriguing chapter on sour beers that is something I’ve found the general population of beer drinkers should know more about. The third section, “Diving In,” is where you put the knowledge gained from the previous sections to the test, focusing on pairing beer with food, creating beer cocktails, and even hosting your own beer tasting. . . . Beerology is one of the more accessible beer appreciation guides out there, featuring a healthy dose of essential information presented in an easy-to-understand and unpretentious way that is the crux of Mirella’s own teaching style. ”

"The book is easy to read, informative while being fun….This can really help you identify what you enjoy or dislike about particular styles so that you can seek out beers that you are more likely to enjoy....It is also great for someone who is trying to help a less experienced beer drinker explore the world of beer."
- D.C.Füd
"One of the best things about “Beerology” is the way that Amato presents beer styles. Beers are grouped by character — refreshing, mellow, striking, captivating, and brews beyond — giving novice drinkers an easy entree to comprehending the dizzying array of styles being brewed... It’s informative without being overwhelming."
- Star Tribune
"It’s an easy yet captivating read that never feels pretentious or long winded. Amato’s goal seems apparent to me: she wants to get people interested and involved in beer by making it fun, educational, engaging, and just plain interesting."
- Beerism
"She covers such topics as the basics of the brewing process, beer styles, tasting and food pairings with a direct and elucidative style….her chapters on hosting tasting parties and food pairings will make you excited to delve deeper into the world of craft beer."
- L.A. Times

“Mirella Amato is not just a beer educator.  She is a beer evangelist.  Taking a unique approach, she demystifies the appreciation of the entire diverse craft beer spectrum.  Learning about something as joyful and alluring as great beer should be as fun as it is educational and Mirella makes it so."
—Sam Calagione, President and Founder, Dogfish Head Craft Brewery
Beerology will transform a beer novice into an enlightened beer enthusiast. Better still, it will teach many enthusiasts how to have even more fun with their beer. It's a fine addition to any library. "
—Garrett Oliver, Brewmaster of the Brooklyn Brewery and Editor-in-chief of The Oxford Companion to Beer
“I am a beer zealot. Probably no secret. What may not be widely understood however is the sheer inner joy and peace that one can achieve from this particular type of zealotry. Should you chose to barrel down this path of freedom yourself, or even just wander along it for a spell, this book is a tremendous tool. No longer do we have to be bound by the industrial brewers' chains of oppression. No longer do we have to accept the mediocre! Free yourselves my brothers & sisters with this righteous book of knowledge!”  
—Greg Koch, CEO and co-founder of Stone Brewing Co.
