The Beer Geek Handbook
by Patrick Dawson
Narrated in Dawson’s signature blend of sarcastic humor and well-researched facts, The Beer Geek Handbook will have veteran connoisseurs and newbies alike itching to get out there and crack open a cold brew while postulating on the merits of a good IPA. With essential knowledge about The Ten Beer Geek Commandments and the Beer Geek Hall of Fame, imbibers are sure to be confident and well-qualified to spread the beery gospel. And for those who happen to be paired up with a beer geek, the book can be used as a field guide for understanding the necessity of vacationing in Brussels or why their fridge is full of eisbocks, sours, and porters instead of well, food.
