Written by beer enthusiasts Howard and Ashley Stelzer, Beer Cocktails is the first book dedicated exclusively to beer cocktails – a trend which continues to grow. The challenge of pairing the distinct flavors of craft brews with cordials, liqueurs and herbs is one many mixologists have eagerly embraced. The four recipe chapters in the book cover pale and American-style beers; Belgian-style beers; stouts and porters; and black and brown ales, plus a wide range of spirits and liqueurs that complement the beer bases. Based in Cambridge, Massachusetts, the authors also created the website shadowofastout.com. Published by Harvard Common Press, it is available in major book stores and on Amazon. Suggested retail is $12.95.
