Read about this book in a beer column in the Portland (Maine) Press Herald newspaper.
David Wehmeyer
There's a chapter that talks about "brew on premise" businesses that will teach you how to brew and also allow you to come in and brew using their equipment!

I highly recommend this book to any beer lover, whether you're a Red Sox fan or not...

I've lived in New England for my whole life. I'm also an avid craft beer fan. So why would I purchase a book about New England beer? The explosion of the craft beer industry has led to the opening of dozens of new breweries, bars and brew-pubs. There are so many awesome beer venues now and this book is the perfect guide to help you find them. The book is great for travelers visiting the area, as well as long time residents like myself.

"Beer Lover's New England" is broken down into chapters by state. The chapters are sub-divided by:
* Breweries
* Brew-pubs
* Bars

Whether you're looking for a fantastic beer bar in Rhode Island or a list of breweries in Vermont, you know exactly where to flip to.

There are two parts of the book that might interest you if you are considering or already into home-brewing:
1. Interested in brewing your own beer, but don't want to buy all the equipment? There's a chapter that talks about "brew on premise" businesses that will teach you how to brew and also allow you to come in and brew using their equipment!
2. There are a small handful (3) beer clone recipes for home brewers. The three beers are: Cambridge Brewing Company's Sgt. Pepper, Wormtown's Sweet Tat and Tullycross Tavern's Simarillo IPA.

I'm personally not a brewer, so I'm not terribly interested in these sections. I will say that the book is light on the clone recipes. This is more of bonus material than anything else.

There is a section on cooking with beer. It includes 11 recipes. In a cool twist, the recipes are for meals found on the menus of some of the brew pubs listed in the book.

My favorite chapter of the book is about pub crawls.

This guide to New England's vast beer landscape is fantastic. Complete with maps, brewery guides, and good ol' New England flavor, it's an easy and informative read. Who needs tasteless internet guides when this book will make you salivate over the pairing of an IPA and certified Maine lobster?

Going state by state, the beer guide highlights how New England's geography and culture shape its beer brewing process. It profiles different breweries and brewpubs accentuating the plethora of beers they offer. I highly recommend this book to any beer lover, whether you're a Red Sox fan or not...
