Through 12 easy-to-follow lessons, beer expert Joshua Bernstein demystifies the sudsy stuff, breaking down the elements that give each type its distinctively delicious flavor. His course hops from lagers and pilsners to roasty stouts and mouth-puckering sour ales, and targeted tastings teach you which flavors are appropriate-and which to dump.
