I really enjoyed reading this one, and was very excited to get an advanced copy through FirstReads. The style of writing was great and the recipes sounded phenomenal.

My husband has been wanting to brew his own beer for a while now but we didn't really know where to start. But after reading this I felt more comfortable choosing a brewing kit (or a least the items needed for brewing) and figuring out what kinds of beer to try.

I also love that it didn't focus on just beer! There were recipes for CHAMPAGNE!! Well Sparkling Wine (I won't be brewing it in Champagne...lol) and recipes for cider and wine. It was very comprehensive and I liked the history and health notes added in.

Overall a really great guide for beginners or a great recipe book for the advanced. I highly recommend it! ( )
