Beer Reads

While I usually stick to Mac stuff around here, sometimes I slip in little nuggets that I just find interesting. One of my hobbies is home brewing beer. Perhaps it’s my background as a chemist. Whatever the reason, I enjoy researching, brewing and drinking beer. So, if anyone has an interest in the science of brewing or the history of beer, I’ve got some good reads for you.[1]

Principles of Brewing Science

Bock (Classic Beer Style Series, vol. 9) or just about any volume in the series

Ambitious Brew: History of Beer in America

Brewing Up a Business: Adventures in Entrepreneurship from the Founder of Dogfish Head Craft Brewery

These are better than their titles would imply. Particularly Ambitious Brew which clarified for me why American beer strayed so far from it’s German roots.

Oh, and I’m drinking a Peeper Ale from Maine Beer Company right now. It’s good.
