Americans have brewed beers using native ingredients since pre-Columbian times, and a new wave of brewers has always been at the forefront of the locavore movement. Brewers use locally-grown, traditional ingredients as well as cultivated and foraged flora to produce beers that capture the essence of the place they were made. In Brewing Local, Stan Hieronymus examines the history of how distinctly American beers came about, visits farm breweries, and goes foraging for both plants and yeast to discover how brewers are using novel ingredients to create unique beers. The book introduces brewers and drinkers to the ways herbs, flowers, plants, trees, and shrubs flavor distinctive beers. A catalog of over 170 different ingredients describes the aroma and flavor influence they have on beer. Brewing Local includes 22 recipes from nationally recognized craft brewers and homebrewers.

-Produced in nine Mexican states, mezcal has gained popularity among north-of-the-border cocktailians who have come to appreciate the complexity and tradition of this smoky, flavorful spirit. Mezcal can be made from any of fifty varieties of agave that are often harvested in the wild, and always roasted prior to fermentation, then ground with stones and animal power, and distilled in clay or copper pots. It is truly the most artisanal of spirits. The varieties of agave and the variations in manufacturing processes yield complexities not found in mezcal's more common cousin, tequila (which by law is made only from blue agave). For these reasons, enthusiasts make cogent arguments that mezcal is more akin to wine, with considerations such as varietals and terroir coming into play. Not to mention that the majority of this that's spirit available in the US is still produced using small-batch methods handed down for centuries. Mezcal brings you a smartly written and beautifully produced primer on mezcal history and production, as a well as a guide to twenty-plus of the most common agave varietals used in production, and a tasting guide, complete with room for your own notes. It doesn't stop there, though: the expertly curated recipe section offers up a selection of over forty craft cocktails that take advantage of mezcal's unique qualities. Throughout, author Emma Janzen, the digital editor at Imbibe magazine and a mezcal devotee, busts mezcal myths, unravels its mysteries, interviews producers, before disclosing tasting tips readers won't find elsewhere---
