A veteran of low-ABV 'session' brewing, Jen Talley brings an enormous amount of practical and technical information to this subject. It's obvious her time at Squatters Pub Brewery in Utah fostered respect for the art and soul of brewing beers under 4.0% ABV. As someone who has been at this business of brewing for over 20 years, I can honestly say this book provided some keen insights into the thought processes and execution behind these fickle beer styles. I for one cannot wait to share this information with my brewers.--Tomme Arthur, Co-Founder & Director of Brewery Operations, The Lost Abbey & Port Brewing Company
After growing ever bolder with high-alcohol beers in the US, session beers have brought back beers for us to drink and enjoy. Session Beers looks back to those authentic and exciting lower-alcohol beers that were there before the term 'session beer' existed.--Peter Bouckaert, Founder and Brewmaster, Purpose Brewing and Cellars, and co-author of Wood and Beer: A Brewer's Guide
For me, the great collection of beer recipes in the second half, generously peppered with the personal stories of the brewers who make them, stands as the shining heart of this book. The raw brewing talent that is represented in this compendium is stunning and a testament to Jen's ability to connect with other brewers.--John Mallett, Director of Operation, Bell's Brewery, Inc. and author of Malt: A Practical Guide from Field to Brewhouse
I was so thrilled to hear Jen Talley was writing this book. Jen always struck me as someone who could create anything despite whatever barriers were in her way. Way back in the early days of craft brewing, instead of seeing brewing in a low-alcohol state as a constraint, Jen found creativity and flavor. This book contains an immense breadth of knowledge, history, and brewing recipes. It is clear from this lovingly crafted book that every brewer should embrace the art of brewing session beers, if not for the challenge, then for the reward of being able to drink more than one and still enjoy oneself. Thanks Jen--I will have another!--Mary Pellettieri, Co-Founder and President, La Pavia Beverages, Inc. and author of Quality Management: Essential Planning For Breweries
