Beer Tasting: An Insider’s Guide to the World’s Greatest Drink By Randy Mosher
If you’ve followed Skiing’s Beer of the Week blog <link> it’s no secret that I like beer—perhaps excessively. A friend of mine at the Brewer’s Association turned me on to this fine piece of literature about tasting beer and I haven’t been able to put it down. From the history of beer to the finer points of beer and food pairing, Mosher’s book covers it all while staying entertaining and without geeking out too much on the chemical specifics. This is the perfect gift for anyone with an inquisitive mind that regularly enjoys tasty malt beverages. If I didn’t already have it, I’d want it.-K.L.
