The Oxford companion to beer by Tom Colicchio( Book )
7 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 635 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"For millennia, beer has been a favorite beverage in cultures across the globe. After water and tea, it is the most popular drink in the world, and it is at the center of a $450 billion industry. The first major reference work to investigate the history and vast scope of beer, The Oxford Companion to Beer features more than 1,100 A-Z entries written by 166 of the world's most prominent beer experts. Attractively illustrated with over 140 images, the book covers everything from the agricultural makeup of various beers to the technical elements of the brewing process, local effects of brewing on regions around the world, and the social and political implications of sharing a beer. Entries not only define terms such as "dry hopping" and "cask conditioning" but give fascinating details about how these and other techniques affect a beer's taste, texture, and popularity. Cultural entries shed light on such topics as pub games, food pairings and the development of beer styles. Readers will enjoy vivid accounts of how our drinking traditions have changed throughout history, and how these traditions vary in different parts of the world, from Japan to Mexico, New Zealand, and Brazil, among many other countries. The pioneers of beer-making are the subjects of biographical entries, and the legacies these pioneers have left behind, in the form of the world's most popular beers and breweries, are recurrent themes throughout the book. Packed with information, this comprehensive resource also includes thorough appendices (covering beer festivals, beer magazines, and more), conversion tables, and an index. Featuring a foreword by Tom Colicchio, this book is the perfect shelf-mate to Oxford's renowned Companion to Wine and an absolutely indispensable volume for everyone who loves beer as well as all beverage professionals, including home brewers, restaurateurs, journalists, cooking school instructors, beer importers, distributors, and retailers, and a host of others"--Résumé de l'éditeur
The brewmaster's table by Garrett Oliver( Book )
9 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Garrett Oliver, America's foremost authority on beer and brewmaster of the acclaimed Brooklyn Brewery, wants to change your food life. In The Brewmaster's Table, he reveals why traditional beer is the new star with today's cuisine and how to make the perfect match. Real beer is now available almost everywhere, yet most people are familiar only with bland mass-market beer. Have you tasted the real thing? Real beer has complex flavors -- it's an affordable luxury that can transform everyday meals from dull to extraordinary. Whether it's a brightly citric Belgian wheat beer with a goat cheese salad, a sharply aromatic pale ale to complement spicy tacos, an earthy German bock beer to match a porcini risotto, a rich, strong Trappist ale with a hanger steak, or even a fruity framboise to accompany a slice of chocolate truffle cake, the right beer is a perfect partner to any dining experience. Garrett Oliver shows you how to make it happen, whether you're at home on Tuesday night, in a restaurant for Sunday brunch, or on vacation in Europe. He explains how beer is made, shows you its fascinating history, and then leads you through the amazing range of flavors displayed by the dozens of distinct styles of beer from around the world. Most important, he shows how beer, which is far more versatile than wine, intensifies flavors when it's appropriately paired with foods to create brilliant matches most people have never imagined. The Brewmaster's Table is entertainingly written by the man Gourmet magazine calls a "passionate epicure and talented alchemist" and is lushly illustrated with Denton Tillman's gorgeous photographs of the world's finest breweries, their excellent beers, and the artisans who produce them. Whether you're a beer aficionado, a passionate cook, or just someone who loves a great dinner, this book will indeed be a revelation. Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET
