Today s dynamic wine culture calls for a different kind of wine book. The Wine Savant is just that: punchy, polemical, and brimming with insights to educate and entertain beginning wine drinkers and seasoned oenophiles alike.
Never has the wine world had so much to offer, and never have smart decisions about value, quality, grape, and season been so difficult to make. In The Wine Savant, Michael Steinberger tramps through the world of contemporary wine from three-buck Chuck and bucket-list Bordeaux to bottle speculators and biodynamic wineries to give the inside scoop on the key concerns facing the new generation of wine lovers:
Why is California suddenly cool again? What s really the difference between a 95-point wine and a 94-point wine? Why is Burgundy ascendant and Bordeaux suddenly so passe? What s a biodynamic wine, what s a natural wine, and should you care? Do food and wine pairings still matter?
Featuring expert buying guides including the New Kings of California and the World s Great $25-and-Under Bottles and tips on tough-to-pair cuisines like Indian and Japanese, The Wine Savant is the perfect guide to today s often-bewildering realm of choice: ferociously opinionated and committed body and soul to enjoying every glass."

Patrick E. McGovern takes us on a fascinating journey through time to the dawn of brewing when our ancestors might well have made a Palaeo-Brew of fruits, honey, cereals and botanicals. Early beverage-makers must have marvelled at the process of fermentation, their amazement growing as they drank the mind-altering drinks which were to become the medicines, religious symbols and social lubricants of later cultures. McGovern circles the globe-to China, Turkey, Egypt, Italy, Scandinavia, Honduras, Peru and Mexico-interweaving archaeology and science to tell stories of making liquid time capsules. Accompanying homebrew interpretations and matching meal recipes help bring the past alive, as our senses and imaginations travel "Back to the Future".

Whether as wine, beer, or spirits, alcohol has had a constant and often controversial role in social life. In his innovative book on the attitudes toward and consumption of alcohol, Rod Phillips surveys a 9,000-year cultural and economic history, uncovering the tensions between alcoholic drinks as healthy staples of daily diets and as objects of social, political, and religious anxiety. In the urban centers of Europe and America, where it was seen as healthier than untreated water, alcohol gained a foothold as the drink of choice, but it has been more regulated by governmental and religious authorities more than any other commodity. As a potential source of social disruption, alcohol created volatile boundaries of acceptable and unacceptable consumption and broke through barriers of class, race, and gender. Phillips follows the ever-changing cultural meanings of these potent potables and makes the surprising argument that some societies have entered ""post-alcohol"" phases. His is the first book to examine and explain the meanings and effects of alcohol in such depth, from global and long-term perspectives.

More great advice from Charlie Papazian, homebrew master and author of the bestselling The Complete Joy of Homebrewing.
"Many ask me, 'What's different about The Homebrewer's Companion?' It's a book that I might have titled The Complete Joy of Homebrewing, Volume 2. The information is 98 percent new information, including improved procedures for beginning and malt-extract brewers as well as advanced and veteran brewers. There are loads of new recipes and useful charts and data that I continually refer to in my own homebrew recipe formulation (I still homebrew about 20 batches a year). My theme throughout is 'Keep it practical. Keep it useful.' I wanted to answer 10 years' worth of questions in this one volume. I did ... and I had fun doing it."

Serve drinks at home in style and bring the party to your guests from one of 12 beautifully themed and stylishly stocked bar carts. What's a party without a well-stocked (not to mention super-stylish) bar? Drinks trolleys are making a comeback, with an upsurge in those of us taking pride in entertaining at home. Originally the epitome of domestic style and taste in the 50s and 60s, retro TV series like Mad Men have left people aching for the glamour of a bygone era, and something unusual for the home. And mobile furniture on the whole is proving popular too: if you're not a fan of the retro style, you might also be taken by the adaptability of some styles of cart as a vital bit of extra storage in a small living space.Gaze upon luxurious marble and smoked glass carts that hark back to the Art Deco era and the golden age of cocktails; edgy tubular metal trolleys that scream 80s utility style; chic Scandinavian stained wood for pared-back parties; mid-century walnut-veneer and brass straight out of Don Draper's office and even folding 1960s aluminium tea-lady trolleys can make quite the style statement. With shelves to store bottles and glassware and a top the ideal height for mixing drinks, each style of cart or trolley lends itself to a carefully curated display of stock. Choose your craft spirits, glassware, shakers, stirrers and other cocktail kit from the wide range now on offer and create not just a practical serving station but a super-stylish addition to any interior.
From the enduring global dominance of Guinness to exciting new craft porters to the resurgence of Russian imperial stouts, porters and stouts are among the most popular beer styles today among homebrewers and craft beer drinkers alike. In Brewing Porters and Stouts widely respected beer and brewing writer Terry Foster presents the history and development of these styles as well as the guidance and expertise necessary to successfully homebrew them yourself. The book opens with the history of the styles, including the invention of porter in eighteenth-century England, how stouts were born from porters (stouts were originally bolder and stronger or stout porters), the development in the United Kingdom, and introduction to Ireland and eventually the United States, where they remained popular even as they fell out of favor in Britain and surged in popularity as the craft brewing revolution took hold. Foster then goes on to explore the many sub-styles of porters and stouts, providing commercial examples and showcasing some of the most exciting developments in craft brewing today, before breaking down the ingredients, including the various malts as well as special flavorings such as vanilla, coffee, chocolate, and even bourbon and finally the yeasts, hops, and waters that are well suited to brewing these styles. Finally, Foster provides a collection of sixty recipes up to six for each sub-style showcasing the variety and range of ingredients explored in the book and providing both extract and all-grain instructions. Brewing Porters and Stouts belongs in the library of every craft beer drinker or homebrewer.

"Thoughtfully conceived and very well written, this is essential somm reading."-The Somm Journal "This is the most important wine book of the year, perhaps in many years."-The Seattle Times "Crisply written, impeccably researched, balanced if fundamentally enthusiastic, scholarly but accessible, and full of unexpected details and characters."-The World of Fine Wine No wine category has seen more dramatic growth in recent years than American Rhone-variety wines. Winemakers are devoting more energy, more acreage, and more bottlings to Rhone varieties than ever before. The flagship Rhone red, Syrah, is routinely touted as one of California's most promising varieties, capable of tremendous adaptability as a vine, wonderfully variable in style, and highly expressive of place. There has never been a better time for American Rhone wine producers. American Rhone is the untold history of the American Rhone wine movement. The popularity of these wines has been hard fought; this is a story of fringe players, unknown varieties, and longshot efforts finding their way to the mainstream. It's the story of winemakers gathering sufficient strength in numbers to forge a triumph of the obscure and the brash. But, more than this, it is the story of the maturation of the American palate and a new republic of wine lovers whose restless tastes and curiosity led them to Rhone wines just as those wines were reaching a critical mass in the marketplace. Patrick J. Comiskey's history of the American Rhone wine movement is both a compelling underdog success story and an essential reference for the wine professional.
