a useful reference, and a source of serendipitious pleasure Engineering and Technology This book contains everything you might want to know about the world's most popular drink. The Field epic...blockbuster that would satisfy any hardcore enthusiast. It's edited by Brooklyn Brewery's ridiculously talented brewmaster Garrett Oliver, a man who writes as well as he brews. Which is annoyingly well. The Guardian anyone with more than a passing interest in malt and hops should find something to interest them between the pages of this hefty book. The Independent satisfyingly comprehensive The Independent an extremely informative read for any beer lover. Suffolk & Norfolk Life A comprehensive biography Maxim

I thought this book would have more of a storied presentation of the items involved, but it's simply an cyclopaedia.
It has it's uses, but you will not be dazzled by this book for sure.

Kindle Edition Quality 29. November 2011
Von Jeffrey Stanley - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I was torn whether to buy this as a print book, or Kindle edition. I decided to get the Kindle version because of the value of being able to carry it with me in my phone, computer, kindle, and iPad. I don't regret the decision.

The Kindle illustrations are quite good, which is not always the case. I always hesitate to buy Kindle books with illustrations. In OSX Lion, you can three-finger drag images from the book (on the cloud reader) into a word processor and see what the specs are. The images all seem to be 425ish-by-X (where X<425). Plenty of resolution to look very crisp in an ebook. Plenty of beautiful color. The book is not heavily illustrated. The one bitmap table I came across was readable, but not especially crisp (a very nice unit conversion chart).

The biggest letdown of the Kindle edition is common with Kindle books: the index's page numbers are useless. The index is also not hyperlinked. Thankfully, the contents are hyperlinked and most Kindle software will allow you to do a text search.

There are lots of very good web links following various sections. A couple of examples are that the draught section ends with a link to the BA's excellent technical manual, and the Cicerone section ends with a link pointing to the organization's web site. It is definitely a modern book that embraces the web.

There are already many reviews covering content. I haven't read enough to comment on that. What I have read so far has been accurate and concise. It isn't terribly in-depth on any topic, but covers a very wide range of topics.

Highly recommended. If you carry a smart phone, Kindle, or iPad it is a heck of a nice thing to keep in your pocket or bag. I'd give it five stars if the index were hyperlinked.

Cheers!

Its OK 21. Juni 2012
Von Beerior - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
While a comprehensive survey of the past and current state of beer and brewing with regards to style, history, notable breweries, technical aspects, etc; the OCB has several flaws which diminish what could have been a powerful work and an indispensable reference. The entries are of greatly varying quality and depth, even when dealing with closely related topics, and contradictions are not uncommon. Entries also frequently digresses into and are even sometimes dominated by discussions which are tangential to the topic at hand. Furthermore, reading from a technical/chemical stand point, many such entries are somewhat watered down and seem to serve to buttress common, if not properly conceived, notions rather than attempt to elevate a less knowledgeable reader. In short: the OCB was written with readability in mind, rather than to be a serious work of reference. The entries on beer history and notable breweries are quite well written and researched, however the notables breweries list does seem to be biased heavily toward traditional continental breweries.

In summary: not a bad read, and an accessible overview of the past and current state of beer and brewing. The OCB sets up a less experienced reader to further explore a rich and fascinating world, but could use quite a bit of work regarding both editing and overall content in order to better inform and elevate readers of all levels.

Ultimate Beer Reference Book 13. Oktober 2011
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
"The Oxford Companion to Beer" is a complete A-Z listing of all things Beer. Want to know about your favorite brewery? Interested in brewing terms like wort, hops, mash? This book has it all.

The book takes all of the topics and presents them in alphabetical order like a dictionary. There is a handy grouping of terms into categories at the beginning of the book to guide you in finding terms that you might not remember the name of. Each entry is succinct and skillfully written by experts from the brewing industry and academia.

The printing quality of the book is superb. The book feels as substantial as the content it contains with each page printed on high quality smooth paper. The book compares to the finest quality dictionaries in print.

If you are interested in beer and want to have handy reference around for research or conversation starters, this is the book to have.

Too Short... 19. Oktober 2011
Von D. Cutter - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Okay, that may be a bit facetious. Nothing of this length and quality exists on the market today, so in that it is quite impressive. (though, if my memory serves me correctly, there is a "Beer Bible" coming)

However it suffers from:

a) The simple need to proofread and error correct,

b) A bit of an East Coast bias (then again, I am about as West as one can get in the main 48 so... however, I have yet to find mention of Widmer (anyone?) or regional mention of the PNW or Colorado)

c) Did I mention proofread and edit - this coming from someone loath to do either - but it is very noticeable and clearly sectionally dependent as well - I think some folks must have submitted too late for the proofreaders.

Oh, and for me personally, d) too shallow on fruit additives.

There are some key brewers missing, and a few regions criminally underwhelmingly mentioned. However in general it covers most topics... but it is no Modernist Cuisine. Myhrvold has set the bar for what to expect in a book attempting to be the 'comprehensive guide'.

Still while I have rated the 1st edition in the middle of the pack - I expect that will rise with the second edition, which if judging by the Companion Oxford Wine text, will come out in 2016.

A conversation starter! 2. Juli 2012
Von brad - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This is the ultimate coffee table book. When you first buy it, you might quickly browse through it and think to yourself that you have purchased the ultimate coffee table book. But after you take a second or third glance through, you realize this is actually much more. This is an informative, incredibly thorough, impressive account of everything beer. Few times have I been so impressed with a product. Truly a pleasure of a purchase.
