Although many do not know that beer can be used for cooking more than bratwurst, people have been cooking with beer for centuries.

Chicago beer writer Bob Skilnik wanted to chronicle recipes using beer in the United States, and in so doing, presents a fascinating history of beer from colonial times to the present in his latest book, “Beer & Food: An American History.”

“I’m not sure if I should call it a history book or a cookbook,” said Skilnik, who has authored several beer-related books and appeared on numerous national television shows. “I just call it a culinary history book. It is more of a historical cookbook than a cookbook, per se.”
