Essex-based craft brewer and Beer Academy Sommelier Nigel Sadler has published a 24-page guide to beer & food pairing.
Notes on Beer & Food Matching outlines the brewing process and describes how the various brewing raw materials affect the flavour of the final product.
It also describes how to assess beer flavour and provides simple tips on pairing beer with food.
Nigel Sadler has previously published books on beer tasting and craft ale brewing.
Nigel Sadler is the award-winning operations and commercial manager of an Essex-based microbrewery. In 2011 he became one of the first people to receive sommelier accreditation from the Beer Academy.
The Notes on Beer & Food Matching book is available direct from the author's website - Learn 2 Brew.
The book costs £4.25.
Why should you buy it?
Nigel Sadler said: "There is enormous interest in matching beer and food and, as a Beer Sommelier, I am often invited to speak about the subject. People frequently ask where they can find out more but frustratingly the number of books on the subject is limited."
“My book is aimed at both craft brewers and beer lovers to provide simple advice on how organise food and beer pairing events and dinners. It was deliberately designed to slip into a pocket or a bag for day to day use rather than being stuck on the shelf gathering dust."
