"Both inspiring and practical, greenmarket foragers and home
brewing teachers Erica & Steve have brought their impressive wisdom
to this wonderfully simple book that has me inspired to brew some
of their Cardamom Ale at home."
--Bill Covaleski, Brewmaster & President, Victory Brewing Company
"Erica and Stephen epitomize the DIY mentality that has
captivated Brooklyn--and the rest of the country for that
matter--over the past few years. After seeing them for years at the
Brooklyn Flea Market teaching people how to brew in small batches,
it's awesome to see how their impact has now spread to all corners
of the country."
--Shane Welch, President, Sixpoint Brewery "Since their launch of homebrew kits at the Brooklyn Flea, Erica and Stephen have been creating seasonal, easy to follow recipes and kits for the home brewer. Now with the Brooklyn Brew Shops Beer Making Book they have defined a true year-round farm-to-bottle guide for the home brewer that brings the joy of making beer to the farmers market. Make beer/Drink beer/Enjoy!"
--Adams Dulye, Executive Chef, The Monk's Kettle "Erica and Stephen are a triple threat--master marketers, whip-smart, kitchen creative--and they're one of the Flea's sweetest success stories, having grown from a cute booth at the market to a full-blown national brand in three short years. If you can make it (beer) in Brooklyn, you can make it anywhere!"
--Eric Demby, Co-Founder, Brooklyn Flea and Smorgasburg "This brewing book is easy to read, easy to follow and proves that it's easy to build your own versions with your own, local ingredients."
--Samuel Merritt, President, Civilization of Beer
Whether you're brewing on your apartment stove, or on a propane burner in your back yard, Erica and Stephen make it easy and fun to craft and make your own beer in one or five gallon batches. With 52 different recipes, you'll be able to make your favorite style, and have endless inspiration to try something new -- every week of the year if you want to. I love this book as much as I love making beer, and I really love making beer. Cheers!
