Editorial Reviews

Review

"Highly entertaining, this book can serve as reference guide for connoisseurs or simply as an enjoyable read." –Seattle Weekly

"A raucous joy to read and will hopefully encourage craft beer and metal lovers to continue exploring common ground." - Beer Advocate

"From unusual ingredients to tongue-twisting bitterness and stratospheric alcohol content, brewers these days are taking beer to extremes, and Tepedelen is just the writer to introduce drinkers to severe suds." –Star Tribune

"Craft beer craziness described by a seriously dedicated drinker whose enthusiasm shines through on every page. It’d make a great last-minute gift for the beer lover in your life" - The Vancouver Province

"Tepedelen does a wonderful job of leading you through the two deliberately dark and scary worlds at once. …Get a copy, grab some friends, raid the liquor store and fire up spotify and I guarantee you’ll enjoy yourselves. "- Bierkast Book Review


"I receive lots of booze books for review, but most end up in a dusty pile that I keep meaning to get around to. This one was different. It hit a nerve, making me feel older and squarer than I like to imagine myself. " - The Times-Colonist

"Tepedelen's book has piqued my overall excitement for trying any new discovery, and this happy result is reward enough all on its own...if the world were right and just and under the influence of all the right substances, then beautiful publications like The Brewtal Truth Guide to Extreme Beers would line shelves on a regular biannual basis, and those publishing dates would be esteemed as international holidays." - Chronicles of Chaos

"The book reads like a an episode of Bill Nye the Science Guy from hell" - Metal Sucks

“Tepedelen's immense knowledge of beer is fascinating, informative, and surely will make everyone reading this want to try some new and wild drinks…Rating 9/10” – BraveWords
“Tepedelen flexes his wide breadth of beer knowledge here, and it’s well worth a tour for any beer lover.” – EAT Magazine
"Ideal for fans of both extreme music and beer." –Vancouver Sun
"If you know one of those people who chases ever-more adventurous, outrageous and extreme beers, Adem Tepedelen’s Brewtal Truth Guide to Extreme Beers is the [book] for them." –World of Beer
"Tepedelen has covered all the bases so you could go into the realm of craft beer as a novice (like myself) and have all the info you need to start your own journey of discovery." –Metal Rules

"Has definite classic potential….Tepedelen’s greatest strength is realizing up front that beer is supposed to be fun and writing in a way that resembles the vibe of a great night at the bar." - Invisible Oranges

"A veritable encyclopedia of craft brewing’s obsession with redefining the edges of what qualifies as 'beer.'" –Barley Mowat

By P. Mulloy on October 18, 2014
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
In this book Adam Tepedelen combines his love for extreme beer and music by examining the interface between extreme beer and extreme music. He divides extreme beer into six categories with a chapter on each – beers using unusual ingredients, those with extremely high alcohol, hop bombs, brews with devilish names, beers that improve with age, and brews inspired by heavy metal bands. Each chapter profiles several examples for each category and for each beer reviewed he recommends a heavy metal song or group. He finishes the chapter with interviews with a brewer and a musician and an interesting sidebar. The beer descriptions are good and show that he has actually imbibed the beer he is reviewing. A well written and interesting book.

I received this book from a dear friend and read through the entire thing that evening. The alternating profiles of some wonderful beers and also testaments from some great names in metal and brewing were captivating. Some personal favorites were the entries from Brann of Mastodon, and J.P. Gaster of Clutch. Each profile comes with an Extreme music pairing, location information about the beer, and an extreme rating. And I must say, I have had the Heady Topper from N.H. while listening to Cannabis Corpse, and those recommendations are right on. So, if you love beer, and metal, kick yer own ass for not owning this book.

If you like beer and music, you'll enjoy the guide. You've probably had some of these beers and listened to some of these bands, but even a seasoned beer and metal aficionado will find something new here. I love Tepedelen's writing and recommend this for the discerning beer and extreme music fan.
