The Brewmaster's Table: Discovering the Pleasures of Real Beer with Real Food

Traditional craft-brewed beer can transform a meal from everyday to extraordinary. It’s an affordable, accessible luxury. Yet most people are only familiar with the mass-market variety.

Drop that Bud and Corona my friends and pick up some “Real” beer…., December 14, 2010

Please, if you are not a beer drinker because you did not like Budweiser, Corona, or any of that yellow piss they dish out in college, you owe it to yourself to buy this book. Garrett Oliver, the Brewmaster of the Brooklyn Brewery, takes us on a worldly adventure, educating us on the history of beer. And what a rich history it is!
Garrett will convince you that the mass market beer you have been drinking is not “Real” beer. It is but a watered down travesty. A product of alcohol prohibition in the US in the early 20th century. Not only does he go over the history of beer, from ancient Egyptian culture to American craft beer, he also informs you on how to best enjoy each beer. For those of you who are self proclaimed “foodies” like myself, you will read this book and want to go to you local Gastropub. Garrett is like a artist with his words. The way he describes the smell and taste of each beer, the food it pairs with, and the region it comes from, makes you want to head out and get that beer that moment.
Well done Mr. Oliver, you have turned this reader into a well educated “Real” beer lover. Corona, or Bud shall touch these lips no more…..

I’m a professional brewer and I still found it very entertaining, July 21, 2011

I’m a professional brewer. I’ve been brewing for close to two decades now; and I’ve met Garrett several times (he’s a great guy: a great host and very pleasant and accommodating). I’ve also studied sensory evaluation and food pairing on my own so most of what’s in the book wasn’t new to me, but I still found it very interesting and entertaining. There were some tidbits of history that were new to me; and Garrett certainly knows how to pair. I did a beer tasting several years ago and semi-promoted this book (’05?) and it went over really well. Looking back through it now it still holds up. Highly recommended!
