Though the book is presented as a travelogue, it is not organized chronologically. It is divided into three parts: "Microbrewed: American Style", "Microbrewed: The World", and "Recipes". The first two sections are divided into chapters, which are further divided into short topics such as a visit to a brewery or to see a brewmaster. These short topics are only two to six pages long, so the book is very easy to read in spurts, or during brief interludes such as on a lunch break or on a plane.
What made this book special to me is that almost every short topic ends with a recipe that covers the kind of beverage discussed in that topic. These recipes were either given to Charlie by a brewmaster he visited, or (most often the case) a recipe he came up with that best approximates the brew.Read more ›
Much like Garrett Oliver's "Brewmaster's Table" or Michael Jackson's "Beer Companion", this book offers a spirited look into the delicious world of craft beer. Not a comprehensive history, but a fun romp through American craftbrewing past and present (as well as some recent international beer adventures). I highly enjoyed this book.
The book continues sort of like that until the end. Fifty great stories about beer, some from America, most from elsewhere, each with a homebrew recipe. But you would be mistaken, I think, to consider this book a mere collection of stories and recipes. Papazian is painting a picture, it seems, and each story and each recipe is like a brush stroke. We all chuckle at the one-liners about how beer is proof of God's existence and so forth, but it seems that Papazian might really believe that there's some sort of truth to that kind of thing. After you see the picture he "paints" with these stories, you might think so too.
