Description

Radical Brewing:
The New Classic of Beer Literature
by Randy Mosher

History,
humor and homebrewing converge when the creative and prolific mind of
Randy Mosher explores the expressive side of beer in Radical Brewing.

Mosher
sees homebrewingand by extension craft brewingas an antidote to
corporate, mass-market beers. Over two decades of brewing and beer
research, he has probed the depths of beer history in both his reading
and his brewing. Radical Brewing displays the many unique ales and
lagers that have resulted from his celebration of beer while serving as
a vehicle for discussing a creative, "outside the lines" approach to
modern brewing. Through it all, the reader is treated to Moshers
irresistible love of beer and brewing as well as some very humorous
asides on beer history.

The infectious spirit of homebrewing is
hard to resist when one reviews Moshers recipe for "Electric Aunt
Jemima Maple Buckwheat Ale," checks out the section on "(Not so Dumb)
Blonde Ales" or chuckles through his fanciful description of the birth
of beer featuring the ancient Harleh-riding Urs Angels. Best of all,
the two-color visually rich content comes in self-contained segments
that instantly engage readers no matter what page they turn to.

Typically,
modern brewing books focus on the science of how to brewand Mosher has
mastered all of that. But in Radical Brewing, he focuses on the
creative, expressive opportunities available to those with a brew
kettle. Each chapter offers techniques and recipes as well as ideas for
independent exploration of new brewing frontiers. The result is a text
that both informs and inspires experienced brewers while providing an
engaging and intelligent introduction to the hobby for newcomers.

Famed
beer writer Michael Jackson once called Mosher "some kind of
homebrewing genius" and in the forward to Radical Brewing, he further
lionizes this genius, saying "His activities are probably a threat to
our morals. Passion, imagination and tenacity are a challenge to the
established order." These two masters of beer have collaborated in the
past, as Jackson notes when he tells how Mosher accurately recreated
the flavor of a now-lost beer style that even Jackson had only once
tasted himself. And though Jacksons accolades for Mosher are great,
one can only imagine that they will pale as practicing brewers of all
stripes begin to digest Moshers treasure-trove of beer ideas and
render their own reviews of this delightful book.
