Stan Hieronymus is a professional journalist and amateur brewer who has made beer his beat since 1993. The editor at Realbeer.com, Stan has written hundreds of articles for periodicals, written Brewing with Wheat (2010), Brew like a Monk (2005), and For the Love of Hops (2012) for Brewers Publications and contributed to several other publications, including 1001 Beers You Must Taste Before You Die. His travels have taken him to breweries in every state in the country as well as behind the scenes in internationally famous breweries such as De Sint-Sixtusadij Westvleterten and Private Weissbierbrauerei G. Schneider & Sohn. Hieronymus lives in St. Louis, Missouri with his wife, Daria.
No one writing about beer brings as much insight, detail, or revelation to the subject as Stan Hieronymus, and Brewing Local may be his best work to date. Ostensibly directed at brewers looking to bring a little local flair into their beer (which it delivers, in spades), it accomplishes something more profound. By connecting beer to place and time, Hieronymus reintroduces us to this beverage we think we know so well. It's one of the few books with the capacity to make you think anew about beer.Jeff Alworth, Author of The Beer Bible -- Jeff Alworth, Author of The Beer Bible You could be happy just buying it [Brewing Local] for the valuable information on a wide range of unusual botanicals and how to use them in beer. But once you start reading, you get swept away on an unexpected journey, ultimately ending up deep inside the minds of people doing some of the most exciting things in beer today.Randy Mosher, Author of Tasting Beer -- Randy Mosher, Author of Tasting Beer Cover review
