From trading recipes wit the bad boys of American beer to drinking Czech-Mex cervesa in Tijuana and hanging out in the beer gardens of Africa, Charlie Papazian has done it all.
Microbrewed Adventures is your shotgun seat to unique, eccentric and pioneering craft-brews and the fascinating people who create them. Travel with Charlie and he crisscrosses America and circles the globe in search of the most flavor packed beers. Along with discovering the master brews of Bavaria, secret recipes for mead and the traditional beers of Zimbabwe, you will find lessons on proper beer tasting and read interviews with American master brewers including those of Dogfish Head, Magic Hat, Rogues Ales, Stone Brewing and Brooklyn Brewery. Charlie also includes special homebrew recipes inspired by innovative brewers who are making some of the best beers in the world.
"This is some job Charlie Papazian gave himself, globetrotting into the heart of lupulin madness to suss out the world's best craft beers for the sake of his readers. Papazian has a gonzo eye for the cutting edge of beer and brewers wherever they exist and, by the way, he also tells a damned fine tale."
