One of the best features of the book are the introduction chapters. Beyond simply introducing beer, it covers the why and how of pairing with beer. It even appropriately addresses whether the alcohol is cooked off and when it isn't. There is even a helpful chart to aid in what beers pair best with certain types of foods. While only a brief portion of the book, it does a wonderful job at making this cookbook accessible to anyone, regardless of experience.
The star of this show is obviously the recipes. I have made several dishes so far and have consistently been blown away. The "Jalapenos & Bacon Beer Cheese Dip" recipe in particular was a huge hit during the football games this past Sunday. The recipes are also quite simple to make, in both required ingredients and directions. Simplicity is good, and The Craft Beer Cookbook really excels here. Simple recipes and great flavor.
If I could change anything, I would have liked to see pictures for every single recipe. Don't get me wrong, there are quite a few pictures of the food. But I like to have pictures for every recipe to compare to. It's a fair tradeoff, and I prefer the 100 recipes and many photos than settle for 60 recipes and full photos.
Overall I think people will really enjoy this book, especially at the price.
The photos are beautiful and it is so great to be able to see what the finished product should look like.
