“The homebrew revival has spawned its first new literature, a book that taps brewhouse knowledge and experience.”
- New Hampshire Times
“More like a beer party than a brewing session . . . Mountain Brew packs a variety of recipes for every palate and a potpourri of beer anecdotes. The information is all there.”
- The Advocate
“A slim classic. . . . Even before celebrity craft brewers came along, the hills of Vermont held earnest homebrewers who tackled lagers and ales with vigor. The strangely enchanting little tome offers a glimpse into that world. . . . It might not be the definitive guide to homebrewing, but it’s a sweet keepsake of another age.”
- Seven Days
“Set aside your dog-eared copy of The Complete Joy of Homebrewing. Eight years earlier―and two before the legalization of homebrewing―a merry band of Vermont homebrewers published their recipes and anecdotes in a slim book call Mountain Brew. There’s more than a touch of rebelliousness in the tone. The homebrewing instructions are a casual narrative, and the ingredients would make a BJCP judge blanch, but the book is a hoot for anyone who wants a glimpse of the cultural origins of this immensely popular hobby. These sound like great folks to have a beer with.”
