“My wife and I were lucky enough to be guinea pigs when John was testing out a couple of recipes and I can confirm that the book will be worth every penny.”

(Sam Calagione, President & Founder, Dogfish Head Craft Brewery)

"Not every recipe in the book is made with beer, but they all taste great when paired with beer — and isn't that the important part? The American Craft Beer Cookbook: 155 Recipes from Your Favorite Brewpubs and Breweries offers up instructions on how to cook everything from appetizers to desserts, including some stuff you'd expect — like pub-friendly foods and barbecue — to some you wouldn't — like cupcakes and ice cream floats. But hey, it's all beer-friendly, so it's all good."

(Saveur)

“Finally, a cookbook made for beer geeks!“

(CoolMaterial.com)

“A bible for guys who like to cook with beer, pair their meals with the perfect pour or do both. Some recipes, like the American wheat beer steamed clams, use the beer for both eating and drinking, and all 155 of them taste great with the right ale or lager.”

(Publisher's Weekly)

"Finally, a cookbook made for beer geeks!"

(All About Beer magazine)

"We've never been so excited to cook in our lives."

(The Boston Globe)

“Showcase(s) the transformative cuisine being undertaken by brewpubs across the country."

(Dolce Dolce)

"I recommend reading Holl’s entire cookbook, marking pages as you go, for there is inspiration for every season of craft beer and cuisine. This is a cookbook you’ll use often and enjoy exploring, glass in hand.”



“Beer food is more than bar food, and Holl takes you through a range of recipes ranging from Slow-Cooked DoppleBock BBQ Meatballs to Duck Chiles Rellenos. Woven within are profiles of notable brewers and stories about the beers described within. Throughout, the culinary status of beer is rightly elevated.”



“The American Craft Beer Cookbook is full of ideas that will appeal to cooks of all levels and change the way you look at beer. Anyone who loves beer, cooking, and entertaining will enjoy this book.”

From the Back Cover

Food That Loves Craft Beer

John Holl, an enthusiast who believes that there's perfect beer for every meal, conducts an exciting tour of delicious food designed to eat with fine craft brews. Thinking beyond standard burgers and nachos, talented brewpub chefs offer pairings such as Pistachio-Crusted Salmon Sandwiches served with a bright hefeweizen, and Curried Pumpkin Chicken Soup paired with - what else? - a pumpkin porter. Craft beer never tasted so good.

I was disappointed that this cookbook wasn't as it initially sounded--the majority of the recipes don't call for craft beer. It was even more disappointing that breweries that don't have restaurants included recipes that don't include their beer...To me, that's like if I wrote out some of my creations and titled my cookbook Craft Beer Eats or something... :/ I don't care what the brewers make at home that has nothing to do with their beer!

I've already made several of these recipes, pairing them with the suggested beers, and they rock! The recipes are diverse and include an amazing mix of both traditional and non-traditional dishes. Can't wait to get through this whole book and make as many as possible!! Great work!

This book is solid. The recipes in here are great, fun and super crowd pleasers. I'd go so far as to say you can roll to a party with an untested recipe and rest assured it will be great.

While certainly focused more on taste than health the recipes contained herein are worth the calories!

Format: Paperback
My husband has spent the better part of the last year homebrewing as a hobby and I've been along for the ride learning from osmosis. Since he is deployed, a huge goal for me is to brew a successful batch myself. This cookbook was full of so much insanely interesting stuff about brewing and brews. The format itself is absolutely amazing - each page has something to learn, create, or drool over, not to mention a little bit of information on different bars, pubs, and dives all over the United States. As a newly-converted homebrewing enthusiast, this cookbook honestly captured all of my attention and I wanted to make everything.

One of my favorite features of the book is that the recipes with beer in them suggest a list of beers to use in the recipe. I have to admit - my brain is a bit foggy when it comes to words like lager and ale - so having a list of beers that I can use not only tells me exactly what I need to know, but also gives me options for taste preference!

I made three recipes out of the book when I got an ecopy through NetGalley, although I made plans for 8 recipes - but preparing for a deployment had me crunching some nights and not really getting free time on the weekends for stuff like the Beermosas [not going to risk drinking and then getting in my car for errands] or the Bavarian Cheese Spread. But what I did make...was the best!

Gouda Fondue
I got my husband hooked on gouda cheese in 2012 and anytime I mention gouda is going into a recipe, he flips his lid. When I said we were having fondue, he got even more excited. Then when I told him I had picked crusty French bread, carrots, and Granny Smith apples for dipping, I think he kissed the ground I walked on, but don't quote me on that. The kids thought this snack was the coolest thing ever!

Format: Paperback
There's a reason we go to bars and taverns for these foods - the recipes require a lot of effort in the kitchen and the ingredients can get pricey. I had a difficult time finding the recommended beers for many of the recipes and had to use substitutions.

There is a wide variety of recipes featuring everything from hamburger to duck, lamb, and venison. Some ingredients -beef cheeks or sweetmeats- are out-there for many cooks but there's even a meatless meatloaf recipe. Everyone is bound to find at least one recipe in this book that they would want to try. Keep in mind that the book is geared for carnivores.

The book does make me want to go on a food-inspired vacation to try these dishes at the locations mentioned in the book.

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for review.
