It's no secret that Louisville is one of America's bourbon capitals, but the Derby City once thrived as a brewing mecca as well, rivaling even St. Louis and Milwaukee with its crisp lagers and Kentucky Common Ale. German settlers arrived with centuries-old brewing traditions and beer gardens, cementing beer and barrooms in Louisville's culture. Following Prohibition, the "big three"--Falls City, Fehr's and Oertel's--kept traditions alive while ingraining iconic brands into the city's fabric and heritage. More recently, craft brewers like BBC, Apocalypse Brew Works and New Albanian Brewing Company have drawn on this rich history. Kick back with Louisville food and beverage journalist Kevin Gibson as he traces Louisville's beer history with stories from the past, interviews and plenty of photos that bring this intoxicating story to life.

Americans have brewed beers using native ingredients since pre-Columbian times, and a new wave of brewers has always been at the forefront of the locavore movement. Brewers use locally-grown, traditional ingredients as well as cultivated and foraged flora to produce beers that capture the essence of the place they were made. In Brewing Local, Stan Hieronymus examines the history of how distinctly American beers came about, visits farm breweries, and goes foraging for both plants and yeast to discover how brewers are using novel ingredients to create unique beers. The book introduces brewers and drinkers to the ways herbs, flowers, plants, trees, and shrubs flavor distinctive beers. A catalog of over 170 different ingredients describes the aroma and flavor influence they have on beer. Brewing Local includes 22 recipes from nationally recognized craft brewers and homebrewers.

"Crohn's Disease: A Memoir From the Toilet" is a funny and candid look at the author's journey through Crohn's Disease. A must-read for anyone suffering from Crohn's, colitis or any form of inflammatory bowel disease, it is also a revealing and emotional read for any audience. The author, a self-described "Chronie," recounts his journey from pre-diagnosis to his current life, telling stories that can alternate from hilarious to heart-wrenching. After moving away from his hometown shortly after college, the author begins suffering severe symptoms related to Crohn's Disease. Unfortunately, three different doctors misdiagnose his ailments as being "nervous stomach." One doctor even tells him to "stop being a baby." From there, his condition worsens, and the retelling goes into deep detail about the path he took to diagnosis, from clinical tests to exploratory surgery. The journey then hits a downward slope, as post-operative complications become draining and even life-threatening, before a bounce-back recovery and ultimate victory over a serious infection related to Crohn's Disease. Along the way, the reader will join the author on the emotional and physical roller coaster ride that is involved with inflammatory bowel disease. From hilarious scenes in clinical settings - the author at one point, under anesthetic, randomly asks a nurse to marry him - to emotional insights that will bring tears, the book engages from the outset and doesn't let go.

Bourbon, the first uniquely American distilled spirit, is nearly synonymous with Kentucky, its birthplace. The region conjures images of verdant hills of bluegrass, rolling pastures punctuated like an intricate quilt with horse farms’ defining white fences, cold bourbon cocktails sweating in the sun, and hundreds of well-dressed racegoers urging their steeds of choice to the finish line—all culminating into one distinctive southern heritage. However, bourbon has come a long way since it was first distilled in the late 1700s, and its popularity and refinement have never been greater. At the same time, southern cuisine has evolved to keep up with bourbon’s evolution through once unheard-of collaborations between kitchen and bar, a renewed interest in seasonal local ingredients, and the influence of the delicious food traditions of the region’s growing migrant populations. This book distills the spirit and hospitality—both new and old—of great southern food and drink into 90 accessible recipes designed to help you achieve the ease and elegance of Bourbon Country entertaining in your own home. Arranged by the kind of traditional fare you’d find on a Kentucky table—pickles, vegetables, ancient grains, bounties from the barnyard, bourbon cocktails, and more—these recipes pay homage to the rituals and victuals of yesteryear while embracing the new southern palate and the flavors of modern Kentucky bourbon.
