The Scratch & Sniff Guide to Beer: A Beer Lover's Companion (Hardcover)
Foreword by Master Cicerone Rich Higgins
Discover a world of beer with this sensational handbook, packed with style guides, how-tos, and fascinating anecdotes about the origins and evolution of both well-known and esoteric beers—and ten unique "scratch and sniff" stickers devoted to aromas inherent in your favorite brews.
To truly know a beer, it isn’t enough to taste it. You must breathe in its distinctive aroma—a specialty blend of hops, malt, water, and yeast that differentiate one beer style from another. Divided into eight chapters, each segment of this book introduces you to a new aspect of beer. Whether illuminating the process of making beer, or teaching you how to start your very own at-home beer cellar, The Scratch & Sniff Guide to Beer bursts with fun information and factoids to dispense at your next bottle share—a wealth of insider knowledge that adds body, depth, and flavor to every page.
The Scratch & Sniff Guide to Beer is for anyone who has even delighted in the pleasures of an aged lambic, marveled at the crispness of properly made pilsner, or longed to seek out some of the world’s most unique brews.
“It’s packed with a wide scope of incredible info about beer regardless of your experience level.”
— Food & Wine
“Justin Kennedy explores the “can revolution” and details the many different styles of beer for the curious drinker. He also shares tips on how to set up your own beer cellar and gives a few beer-infused recipes. Plus, there are fun scratch-and-sniff stickers scattered throughout the book!”
“[It] not only brings the smells of the beer world to life, it makes learning about beer fun too… Learning is a lot easier when it’s fun and this book does a great job of making it as simple as drinking a great beer.”
