Beer Bible

Regular price $24.00

Bottoms up, beer lovers! Announcing a second edition of the ultimate reader- and drinker-friendly guide to the world’s ales and beers: The Beer Bible, the book that has over 120,000 copies in print, that won an IACP Award, and that John Holl of All About Beer Magazine called “The only book you need to understand the world’s most popular beverage.”

Learn more about your favorite Red River Brewing Company beers, like the Catskinner IPA & the Bad Medicine Honey Double IPA.  What is Greenie Peak Wheat and how is it similar to the Back Forty Farmhouse Ale?  What does it mean to say that our new Angry Bear Blonde is an Imperial version of the tried and true Lazy Bear Blonde.  Over 600 pages of beer knowledge that is a must-have for any beer nerd!


Now with 25% all-new material, The Beer Bible: Second Edition approaches its subject the same way beer lover’s do—by style, just like a pub menu. More than 100 are covered, from pilsners, porters and stouts to new and unusual fresh-hop ales, the recent return of lagers and helles beers, Japanese sakes and European farmhouse ales, reflecting how the American craft movement traveled overseas. It also covers the history, or how we got from gruel beer to Black IPA in 10,000 years. The alchemy—malts, phenols and esters. The curiosity: How to read a Belgian beer label. And the pleasure, from how to taste like a brewer to the alchemy of pairing food and beer to beer tourism and drinking games.

“The only book you need to understand the world’s most popular beverage. I swear on a stack of these, it’s a thumping good read.”––John Holl, editor of All About Beer Magazine and author of The American Craft Beer Cookbook
