His book gives a fascinating account of the birth and growth of our country’s brewing industry and its influence on American cuisine. A mouth-watering 90 recipes are included, from beer soup and beer pudding to Samuel Adams roast beef and roast pork loin with Rhinelander Bock.”
It also includes a foreword by Jim Koch, Founder of the Boston Beer Co., brewer of Samuel Adams.
