About the Author

John Schlimm is a member of one of the oldest brewing families in the United States, beginning with his great-great-grandfather Peter Straub. A writer, educator, and artist, Schlimm is the author of several books, including The Straub Beer Cookbook and The Straub Beer Party Drinks Handbook. His website is www.johnschlimm.com.

More About the Author

Named one of the "Vegan Men We Love" by VegNews magazine, John is an activist, educator, artist, and international award-winning author of such books as The Cheesy Vegan (Coming October 1), Stand Up!: 75 Young Activists Who Rock the World, And How You Can, Too! (Coming September 17), Grilling Vegan Style, The Tipsy Vegan, and The Ultimate Beer Lover's Bar Snacks & Beer Cocktails (coming Summer 2014). A member of one of the oldest brewing families in the U.S. and the son of a former butcher and meat-processing business owner, John came out on The Ellen DeGeneres Show as a pro-meatless, pro-vegetable loving kind of foodie, expressing the sentiment that "no living being, human or animal, should ever go through this life unloved" to Ellen's millions of viewers.

John's cookbooks and appearances have been critically acclaimed and heralded by the vegan and mainstream media and readers alike, including The New York Times, NPR's The Splendid Table, Martha Stewart's Everyday Food, U.S. News & World Report, QVC, his appearance on Ellen, and two cross country book tours with Caesars Entertainment, as well as his groundbreaking Commencement Address to the Class of 2012. John has a Master's in Education from Harvard University, and has authored 14 books; the most recent three cookbooks, written since his transition to vegan, carry this dedication: To All the Animals ~ So you know that you have not passed this way unloved.

Format: Hardcover
This book seems to be little more than a collection of newspaper recipes that only peripherally include "beer" as an ingredient. You could just as easily substitute "chicken stock" or "yellow water" and achieve the same results--an indication of the lack of effort that went into the writing of this cookbook.

Truly galling for anybody who knows anything about beer (beyond Bud, Miller, and Coors) is that there is not even the slightest effort to differentiate between styles, and anybody who knows the slightest about beer and cooking will tell you adding a pale ale to a recipe will yield wildly different results than a stout, Belgian ale, or porter.

Simply put, this book is an insult to beer advocates as well as serious cooks.

[And don't get me started on the "comprehensive collection of recipes for mixed drinks, chuggers, shots, chasers, party punches, milkshakes, and flaming drinks -- all made with beer." What an absolute travesty.]

Ignore the five-star reviews from friends and family members, publisher's shills, and reviewers who got a free book. Poor editing, chintzy production values (no photos or illustrations to speak of), and some really dubious printing quality all suggest this book was done on the cheap to exploit beer connoisseurs' desire for a decent cooking-with-beer title. Trust me, this isn't one of them.

Format: Hardcover
As "fair deal guy BB" stated in another review, this book does not do justice to anyone who enjoys cooking, enjoys beer, and would like to be able to enhance food with beer and vice versa. I really thought that beer was beyond this - many chefs at fine restaurants have started taking beer more seriously and have given it the same considerations in their dishes and for pairing as they do wine. Mr. Schlimm is obviously not a fan of this level of appreciation of beer. The recipes include beer as an after thought, with no thought put into which style would work best with each dish. A couple of recipes indicate "light beer", but everything else is just "beer". At least the most basic recipes including wine indicate "white" or "red". Couldn't these recipes have been tested and given to us with an "ale" or "lager" determination?

In a nutshell, nearly 1/2 of these recipes involve beer only to batter and fry. Who needs a cookbook for that? Most of the remaining recipes have simply swapped beer with another liquid, such as water or broth. Nothing here screams original or makes me think that I must try it now.

Great Recipe book for the beer lover friends you have. The guy I gave it to loved it and tried several of the recipes over the first three days he had it.

Purchased this for my husband as a gift and he loved it. He and my sons are into Home brewing and so we have beer in the house all the time. They have really enjoyed combining their love of cooking with their hobby of brewing.

If you know about cooking and about your beer styles, you will like this book.

The recipes are somewhat vague though. In all of the recipes they just call for beer, not telling you what style would be most appropriate or recomended.

There are a lot of good recipes in all of the cooking and drinking catagories.

I recomend this book.
