Think you’ve learned all the tricks of the beer trade? Think again. You may know some but you don’t know 100 (or maybe you do). But now you can, with Beer Hacks: 100 Tips and Tricks to Better Your Brew by Ben Robinson.
Need to learn all kinds of silly beer tricks, weird projects, and tips you’re unlikely to use? Beer Hacks: 100 Tips and Tricks to Better Your Brew has you covered. It’s filled with all kinds of silliness that only a beer bro needs to know.
Here’s a look at some of what the book has to offer:
- Quick ways to cool a beer down.
- Open a beer with everyday objects.
- Clean crap with beer when you should be drinking it.
- Just 2 beer-based food recipes.
- 4 beer cocktails.
- “Everything you need to know about glassware, serving temps, and more” presented in just 22 tiny pages.
- Infusing beer with random flavors.
This might be a funny book to get a beer loving friend or throw in someone’s stocking, but it offers little of interest for the hardcore craft beer fan. Most of the advice it contains is geared towards the casual beer drinker, rather than the beer aficionado. You may find a tip or two, but most if going to seem pretty childish in nature.
The advice contained in Beer Hacks may not skew towards the hardcore craft beer fan, but it is a good reminder that we shouldn’t take beer too seriously. Beer is a beverage to appreciate but also to enjoy and have fun with. We often need a reminder of that final piece. Relax and have a beer, without the pretentiousness that sometimes seeps into the craft category.
If you want some laid-back beer fun, grab yourself a copy of Beer Hacks: 100 Tips and Tricks to Better Your Brew on Amazon. Crack a cold one and enjoy.
