"A tasty draft of advice" for finding the finest brews that's "also thirst-quenchingly smart" (Philadelphia Inquirer). Short Course in Beer is designed to turn the novice beer lover into an expert enthusiast. Readers will come to understand the beauty of beer and the sources of its flavor, as well as learn which beers are worth our time and which are not. With tongue in cheek, the author examines beer's historical connections to the Crusades, the Hundred Years War, and modern-day soccer riots. He talks frankly (and joyfully) about the effects of alcohol on the body and brain, he defends beer from its enemies, and ushers it out of the frat house and into the dining room. Discussion questions at the end of each chapter are designed to stimulate lively conversations—presumably over a glass of equally lively beer. "Indispensable." —Draft Magazine
