Brewers Publications supports the mission of the Brewers Association by publishing books of enduring value for amateur and professional brewers as well as titles that promote understanding and appreciation of American craft beer.
Brewers Publications is the leading publisher of contemporary and relevant brewing literature for today’s craft brewers, homebrewers and beer enthusiasts. Brewers Publications started in 1986 when expert brewer Greg Noonan presented a manuscript to Charlie Papazian at a homebrewers conference. Brewing Lager Beer: The Most Comprehensive Book for Home- and Microbreweries became the first book from Brewers Publications, a division of Papazian’s young Association of Brewers (now the Brewers Association) by the late Greg Noonan.
Today, there are nearly Brewers Publications 50 titles—print and digital—and a beer book to fit most needs. Whether you are just discovering beer or are a seasoned professional, we are the go-to choice for authors, brewers and craft beer aficionados.
Kristi Switzer, Publisher
Kristi fell in love with great beer during a year-long exchange program in Germany. In 1993, she began her involvement with craft brewing when she joined Alaskan Brewing Company. There she immersed herself in all things beer, focusing on marketing communications and public relations. She is a BJCP-certified judge and completed her certificate for the Professional Sequence in Editing through UC Berkeley. Kristi joined the Brewers Association in 2008 as publisher for Brewers Publications. She has published over a dozen technical books for both professional and homebrewers.

In the spirit of support for America’s small and independent craft brewers, BP has long believed it is important for our books to also be produced in the United States. We have longtime partnerships with American printers and we appreciate their commitment to quality, safety and sustaining American jobs.
