Das Craft-Bier Buch

Die neue Braukultur

Gestalten, September 2014, 248 S., Geb.,

Kleine Brauereien besinnen sich wieder auf das Wesentliche beim Bier: ehrliches Handwerk und vollen Geschmack. So wird Bier neuer Ausdruck von Echtheit und Lebensgefühl. Bier erfreut nicht nur Leib und Seele, sondern etabliert sich immer mehr als Kulturgetränk. Brew it yourself ist mehr als ein Trend, es ist das Credo für neue Bierkreative, die auf der Suche nach dem verlorenen Geschmack sind. Sie kombinieren in ihren kleinen Unternehmen frische Ideen mit traditionellen Verfahren, entdecken die Freude am Experimentieren und entfachen mit ihren Produkten die Lust auf ein kühles Helles wieder neu.

Craft Beer , das ist handwerklich gebrautes Bier. Was vor über 30 Jahren in den USA mit vielen kleinen Hobbybrauereien startete, hat bis heute rund um die Welt von Südafrika bis Europa viele Anhänger gefunden. Ob historische oder neu interpretierte Brauverfahren, besondere Geschmacksrichtungen oder ganz neue Produktionsweisen hier geht es um ehrlichen Biergenuss mit Individualitätsanspruch. Individuell sind auch Produkt- und Verpackungsdesign: Hier gibt es ausgefallene Etiketten oder auch Flaschen in besonderen Farben und Formen.

In Das Craft-Bier Buch erfahren Freunde des guten Biergeschmacks die Geschichten hinter den Sudkesseln, von der historischen Entstehung und ihren regionalen Besonderheiten bis hin zu aktuellen Entwicklungen. In diesem Buch werden Menschen porträtiert, die eines gemeinsam haben: Liebe und Leidenschaft für -Craft-Bier, für den Brauprozess und die eigene Kreation. Sie haben dabei ihren persönlichen Weg zum Bierbrauen gefunden und bereiten dem Bier so neue Zugänge als ein echtes, ein neues Stück Trinkkultur. Solche Biere trinkt man heute nicht nur abends in der Kneipe. Vielmehr bekommt man zu jedem Anlass das passende Bier kredenzt: das eine als Aperitif, das andere zum Fisch und wieder ein anderes sogar zum Nachtisch jedes anders, mit seinen ganz individuellen Facetten.

Und für alle, die gerne verstehen möchten, wovon man beim Bierbrauen genau spricht, bietet Das Craft-Bier Buch neben den Porträts der Bierbrauer ein kleines Glossar mit allen wichtigen Fachausdrücken und Rezepten. Zum Wohl! Das Buch erscheint in deutscher und englischer Sprache.

Torsten Goffin, Stevan Paul

Craft Beer Kochbuch

Brandstätter Verlag, September 2015, 240 S., Geb.,

Kaum eine Woche vergeht, in der nicht irgendwo eine Brauerei neu gegründet wird. Quer durch ganz Europa verzeichnen die Bier- und Braufestivals Besucherrekorde. Tausende pilgern zu Veranstaltungen, wo Brauereien stolz die Ergebnisse ihrer Leidenschaft präsentieren. Craft Beer, d.h. handwerklich gebrautes Bier, heißt das Phänomen, das für Furore sorgt.

Bisher herrschte auf dem Buchmarkt ausgerechnet bei der naheliegenden Verbindung - Bier und Essen - gähnende Leere. Damit ist jetzt Schluss! Das Craft Beer Kochbuch ist eine wahre Liebeserklärung an die neue und geschmacksintensive Braukultur und zeigt, was und wie man mit und zu Bier kochen kann. Eine kulinarische Troika: Bestehend aus Stevan Paul, der die Rezepte entwickelt hat - allesamt weit abseits von der deftigen Tristesse, die das Genre Bierküche bislang auszeichnet.

Ergänzt durch ein gutes Dutzend Porträts von Torsten Goffin über Brauer und Brauereien in Europa, Amerika und Australien. Der Foodblogger und Gastro-Journalist liefert eine Einführung in die Craft-Beer-Welt mit spannenden Geschichten und Empfehlungen zum Pairing von Bierstilen und Gerichten. Beides wird, wie schon beim Bestseller "Auf die Hand", von Daniela Haug brillant in Szene gesetzt.

The Craft Beer Revolution

How a Band of Microbrewers is Transforming the World's Favorite Drink

Macmillan, Mai 2015, 252 S., Kt.,

Over the past 40 years, the craft beer segment has exploded. In 1980, a handful of microbrewery pioneers launched a revolution that would challenge the dominance of the national brands, Budweiser, Coors, and Miller, and change the way Americans think about, and drink, beer. Today, there are more than 2700 craft breweries in the United States, with another 1,500 in the works. Their influence is spreading to Europe's great brewing nations, and to countries all over the globe.

In The Craft Beer Revolution, Steve Hindy, co-founder of Brooklyn Brewery, tells the inside story of how a band of home brewers and microbrewers came together in one of America's great entrepreneurial triumphs. Citing hundreds of creative businesses like Samuel Adams, Deschutes Brewery, New Belgium, Dogfish Head, and Harpoon, he shows how their combined efforts have grabbed 10 percent of the US beer market - and how Budweiser, Miller, and Coors, all now owned by international conglomerates, are creating their own craft-style beers, the same way major food companies have acquired or created smaller organic labels to court credibility with a new generation of discerning eaters and drinkers.

This is a timely and fascinating look at what America's new generation of entrepreneurs can learn from the intrepid pioneering brewers who are transforming the way Americans enjoy this wonderful, inexpensive, storied beverage: beer.

Sean Lewis

We Make Beer

Inside the Spirit and Artistry of America's Craft Brewers

St. Martins Press, September 2014, 213 S., Geb.,

Sean Lewis was living in Boston when he first set foot inside the Blue Hills Brewery. He was writing for BeerAdvocate magazine about America's craft brewers, and the then-fledgling Blue Hills was his first assignment. Lewis was immediately struck by the spirit of the brewers he met there. That visit would lead him first to an intensive study of beer-brewing, and later to a nation-spanning journey into the heart—and the art—of American beer making.

What Lewis found along the way was a group of like-minded craftsmen—creators who weren't afraid to speak their minds, who saw their competitors as cherished friends. A group who takes sheer joy in their work, and who seeks the same kind of balance in their lives as they do in the barrels they brew. He shared pints with pioneering upstarts like Paul and Kim Kavulak of Nebraska Brewing Company, and talked shop with craft beer stalwarts like Ken Grossman of Sierra Nevada and bombastic innovators like Greg Koch (the "Arrogant Bastard" behind Stone Brewing Co.). He found, in them and others, a community that put its soul into its work, who sees beer-making as an extension of themselves.

We Make Beer is not just a celebration of American brewing, but of the spirit that binds brewers together. It's about what you can discover in yourself when you put your hands and your heart into crafting the perfect pint.

The Craft Maltsters' Handbook

White Mule Press, August 2014, 214 S., Geb.,

The industrial process of germination-which converts hard, insoluble cereals into friable, extractable grains for subsequent use as a food source for humans or yeast - is called malting. The Craft Maltsters' Handbook provides an in-depth understanding of the technical and scientific meanings of words and phrases used in malting and is an up-to-date reference on the many types of malts used in brewing and distilling today. The rise in craft micro-malting is a nod to the 19th century men and women who provided the malt for brewing/distilling and part of the growing trend of taking back an art from large multinational corporations who have come to dominate much of agriculture and manufacturing.
