For years we have wanted to distil our thoughts about exactly why we love craft beer and the people who brew it; to put pen to paper and write the ultimate book on the subject. So we have. Craft Beer for the People – the BrewDog book – publishes today! 240 pages on what craft beer is, how it is made and why that first sip leads to a lifetime of adventure.

Craft Beer for the People is out now – buy your copy here!

Inside, we have covered why craft beer is beating down doors all over the world – focusing on everything from the secrets of barrel-ageing to how to host a beer tasting. There is a dedicated chapter on the how and the why of pairing beer with food, featuring two-dozen detailed recipes to cook at home that take beer to the next level at mealtime.

Speaking of recipes, we have also dialled in a section on homebrew with BrewDog recipes and the instructions on how to create ten world-beating beers from other craft breweries we love, many of which are published here for the first time. So if you want to craft a batch of Beavertown Gamma Ray, Mikkeller It’s Alive or Cloudwater’s stunning Hopfen Weisse (to name but three) now you can!

Craft beer is breaking through into the mainstream because of the experimentation and individuality of the men and women who create it – so Craft Beer for the People reflects this by being fully customisable. Stamp your personality on it with tasting sheets to complete, I-Spy games for bar visits and even a chance to design your own personal beer mat.

Yes, we want this book to be something you’ll read on the sofa, take with you into the kitchen and carry to bars to consult, annotate and spill beer on. It also carries a unique look at different beer styles; replicated as a progression to work your way through, with jumping-off points from lager to sours. Each pathway exists to get you thinking about your next beer and how its aromas, flavours and history relate to the one you had before!

Craft Beer for the People is out nowavailable to buy in our online shop and also via Amazon and other online retailers, plus a range of high-street and independent booksellers. It will launch in North America on November 7th but can be pre-ordered in the US here. Pick one up, crack open your favourite beer and discover something new about just how amazing craft beer can be. And if you’ve already had a read, let us know your thoughts in the comments below!

A really fascinating read I downloaded the kindle version so although I can't write on it (not unless I want to use permanent marker on my iPad) it was still interesting. Thank you for taking the time to write it :)
