We’ve taught you how to brew your own beer before, and we’ve taught you how to build your own kegerator, but the beers you were brewing as a beginner were probably, no offense, noobish. This is your text book to take your new hobby to the next level.

Authors Tess and Mark Szamatulski used the most delicious, intoxicating method to perfect the homebrew versions of popular ales: trial and error. Brewing, tasting, re-brewing and re-testing, they’ve narrowed the flavor profiles for 200 brand-name beers down to a recipe that, unless you’re palate is ludicrously refined, will be good-enough-for-government-work approximations of the real deal. Get your homebrew party started for just a little over $10 here.
