The Complete Idiot's Guide to Beer Tasting will provide readers with a comprehensive introduction to understanding and enjoying the vast styles and complex characteristics of beer. Understanding and enjoying beer is no longer a simple process, as beer has gone from a world of relatively small offerings from major brewers to a universe of literally hundreds of unique styles from craft brewers around the world. Like wine, the taste and subtle characteristics of beer can be affected by a number of different components including the brewing style, the yeasts and hops that determine taste and character, how the various grains are used in brewing, and more. The Complete Idiot's Guide to Beer Tasting is not a guide to brewing, it's a guide to tasting, understanding, and enjoying what has become a complex and often confusing process of enjoying one of the world's oldest beverages. Readers will learn the brewing process and how it can affect a beer, how to recognize tasting notes and aromas, how to identify unique styles, how to taste and enjoy them properly; even how to select the right glassware and serving temperature for maximum enjoyment.

As Mark Brewer explains in his introduction, "Beer is one of the oldest beverages known to man . . . and woman! In fact women were the first brewers since one of their primary responsibilities involved cooking. Years ago beer was considered a food as well as a drink. Beer provided many of the calories needed for one's daily diet. Dating back all the way to the fifth millennium BC, beer was recorded by the ancient Egyptian scribes, who also created an extra hieroglyph specifically for “brewer.” Historians tell us that beer was used as a method to compensate laborers who were building the pyramids. Perhaps more importantly, if an Egyptian man offered a woman a sip of his brew, they were betrothed." Starting with an introduction to the history of beer, this A–Z dictionary takes a humorous looks at the various types of beer and common verbiage associated with it while educating the reader in the process. Covering everything from Abbey to Aging, Hops to Head Retention, and Skunky to Stout, Mark Brewer's Brewology is perfect for beer lovers everywhere.
