The timeless combination of America's favorite frothy beverage, with its solid gastronomic counterparts, is the focus of this culinary chronicle. Documenting the parallel development of the brewing industry with that of American cookery, this exhaustive history traces ale's influence on recipes in America's early history, the introduction of lager beer in the 19th century, the use of malt extract during Prohibition, and the recent advent of craft beer.
The more than 60 beer-related recipes encourage chefs to experience the bliss of wild salmon grilled on cedar planks or brownies washed down with a creamy stout.
