Beer FAQ: All That's Left to Know About the World's Most Celebrated Adult Beverage by Jeff Cioletti is a straight-forward and always entertaining guide to the world of beer that answers all those burning questions. Everything from beer's many styles and ingredients, to the countless traditions that drive the world's most popular beverage... Beer FAQ is the ultimate beer resource, and it may well be the last book about beer that you'll ever need.” – americancraftbeer.com

“As the title suggests, this addition to the 'FAQ' line of reference books goes deeper than so many of the Beer 101's that everyone with a byline and a grasp of the brewing process felt compelled to write in the first half of this decade. Instead, it reads more like the blue-square ski trail of the beer-book world: an intermediate reference guide that provides more detail than an intro (with a list of common types of barley and hops, with brief descriptions, for example) but not as much complexity as an academic text. Written by a highly regarded beer journalist and author, this engaging read will find a perfect home with any beyond-the-basics drinker who wants a one-stop shop for everything from the best beer bar in Stockholm to the politics behind The Craft Beverage Modernization and Tax Reform Act.” – Forbes.com

Rather, with great detail it delves into topics including beer traditions, beer styles, the history of beer in the US, how beer is made, an explanation of the three-tier system, the evolution of modern beer packaging, proper glassware, a guide to the best beer bars, beer cocktails, beer festivals, and homebreweing.”
