Review

Praise for Brewed Awakening:

“Joshua M. Bernstein's Brewed Awakening shines a spotlight on the variety, ingenuity, and innovation that is alive and well in the beer community. Over the past decade, the collective renaissance of beer and brewing has proven that this is the best time in history to be a beer drinker. Brewed Awakening is a great look behind the curtain of the beers that are making this revolution so great.” —Ken Grossman, Founder, Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.
 
Brewed Awakening does an excellent job of immersing the reader right into the heart of what craft beer is all about. Hardcore beer geeks and newcomers to the craft beer revolution alike will find a wealth of fascinating, and fascinatingly cool, information on every page.” —Greg Koch, CEO and cofounder, Stone Brewing Co.
 
Brewed Awakening has something for every beer lover, but I think it is most ideal for upping the beer IQ of those just entering our ranks. It demystifies the brewing process and the international craft brewing movement.” —Sam Calagione, president and founder, Dogfish Head Craft Brewery

A friend gave me this book because she met the author at a book signing. I've read it multiple times and find new things to love each time. Beer is very subjective, and the author is expressing his opinions on the ones he reviews, but I have found many new beers to seek out and sample. Even if I don't always agree with the author, the writing is easy to read and engaging. Highly recommended!

the best book on craft beer by a mile. It is at the same time, informative and loaded with technical detail, while being immensely funny and readable.

I'd been tipped off to this book from a few beer cognoscienti and pub owners here in NYC and am glad I got in on the ground-floor of its release.

It's well-thought out and written, highlighting the stars and best talent of the craft-beer industry today. I consider myself to be somewhat of a connoisseur and I totally agree with the author's picks of the beers to try in each category. Pretty awesome the way the outside cover folds out to reveal a poster of the best of the best!

To boot it's well art-directed and a pleasure to read. You'll tear through it in one weekend (like I did). 5 stars!

Ever passed by the beer aisle and been drawn to the little-known, but mystical sounding, names and labels? Too afraid to give it a try? Check this book out so you can get a great introduction to craft beer. The author has done his research (what a hard life) and it shows in the product. He doesn't dumb everything down, but he doesn't try to make you feel like an idiot. I feel like this is a great introduction to the movement toward great tasting, unique, regional beers. At the end of each chapter a list of must-tastes are included, giving you a good start to your tasting trek. Toward the end there is a handy glossary and event list so you can check out your local peddlers.

Highly recommend as a gift to any student who will be attending Chico State. It discusses Sierra Nevada and makes you feel proud to live so close to such a badass brewery. And yes, most of us do graduate as beer snobs.

Format: Hardcover
This is a truly fun read! Brewed Awakening is a primer for lovers of craft brewing. The book hits first the basics (beer ingredients), and covers topics such as seasonal and organic beers before finally wrapping up with a chapter on cellaring beer and beer-pairing dinners. My fiance is a home brewer, and I spent every night for a week bugging him with "Have you ever had a gueuze?" or "Did you know beers with high ABVs cellar the best?" I also really enjoyed the stories of how small breweries began farming their own hops or decided to brew a glucose-free line of beers.

Interspersed throughout the book are beer lists of "three to try" or "twelve to try" for different categories of beers (sour beers, pre-prohibition style lagers, etc.) I've decided this is going to be my "life list" for beer. The recommended beverages span beer you can pick up in your local Kroger (Redbridge, 8-ball Stout) to imperial stouts you would have to stand in line for the night before the release date in the Munster, IN (Dark Lord Russian-style Imperial Stout). Anytime I head to New York or Quebec or Maine for a conference or vacation, I'll know which breweries to head to!

So in short, this is a fun book to read and has been my most referenced book over the last 6 months (I received this as an ARC, so I've had it for awhile).

Format: Hardcover
Brewed Awakening is a great book for those just becoming acquainted to the craft beer movement and experienced beer drinkers alike. For someone who prides herself on knowing a lot about beer, I now realize that I was largely unaware of a ton of neat facts about beer (and its ingredients, brewing processes, notable brewers...the list goes on). I also really like the fact that the book looks into international beers/breweries, as I'm really only familiar with US brews.

The author's writing style is very engaging and I really appreciate the layout. There are lots of cool pictures and recommendations on a lot of beers and new styles that I hope to try some time! I definitely recommend this book and plan on picking another up one as a stocking stuffer for the holidays.
