There are few things in the world as beloved as beer. Today more than six thousand microbreweries in the United States have elevated this keg-party staple into a true art form. By far and away the most popular alcoholic beverage, our traditional view of beer is that of a simple, refreshing drink brought to us by recognizable brand names, but there is so much more to this miracle beverage than we know, and Richard Betts cleverly and fragrantly breaks down the history, science, ingredients, and processes behind the beloved brew.

What’s the difference between a pilsner and a stout? Why is water so important to beer? What's the best temperature to serve a lager, an ale, or a stout? What the heck is a hop anyway? Betts makes the science and history of beer as refreshing as an ice-cold one on a hot summer day and couples accessible information with beautiful illustrations and sixteen scratch & sniff scents. Everyone from frat bros to the snootiest beer snobs will learn something new. With this knowledge in hand, and some scratching and sniffing, you’ll have the tools to make informed decisions about the brews that will make you smile every time. Cheers!
