    Brewing Local: American-Grown Beer

    Brewing Local: American-Grown Beer

    A Guide to Exploring Local Flavor Using Cultivated and Foraged Ingredients by Stan Hieronymus; Foreword by Dogfish Head Founder Sam Calagione

    The growing hunger for locally sourced food is not a trend that has been blind to beverages, beer included. And while Americans have brewed beers using native ingredients since pre-Columbian times, a new wave of brewers has always been at the forefront of the locavore movement. The latest release from Brewers Publications, Brewing Local: American-Grown Beer by Stan Hieronymus, introduces brewers and drinkers to the ways herbs, flowers, plants, trees, nuts and shrubs flavor distinctive beers. The foreword is delivered by Dogfish Head Craft Brewery founder Sam Calagione, a longtime enthusiast for using local and unique ingredients in beer.
