    "Perfect"

    What a great lesson/overview of beer in general! He goes just deep enough that you constantly learn cool new stuff and not get lost in the weeds. As a hobby home brewer he answered questions I didn't know to ask and realized I didn't understand. To a lay person that simply loves to have a pint now and then it will open their eyes to how much more there is about beer and how really magic it is! He's a great story teller too. I recommend this highly!

    "Prerequisite"

    This is a phenomenal course on beer. From the home-brewer, pro-brewer, or beer drinker. This is a great listen. One of the best I have listened to. And I have listen to many... This is in the top 2. I truly feel it should be a prerequisite before you become drinking age.

    "One of the best books on brewing that I have read!"
    Would you listen to Brewmaster's Art again? Why?

    I loved the book. Lots of great information presented in a very sensible manner. As soon as I was done with the book, I started it over and am listening to it again.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Very straight forward with a lot of very practical useful information.


    What about Charles Bamforth’s performance did you like?

    This guy loves beer!!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I love learning about beer. This book has helped me to understand more about the science of my home brewing.


    Any additional comments?

    Charles, God willing, someday I am going to buy you a beer to say thanks for your life's work and for helping me be a better brewer.

    "Perfect Intro to Beer"

    A good lecture series that covers the basics and delves into some topics more deeply. For the beginner to intermediate Brewer and beer enthusiast.

    "great book"

    To be honest, I thought this was going to be more step advanced step by step process of the art and science of brewing. It is ,but not to the effect that you would expect. This is more like a text book that you would expect to have for a class. Glad I've got it though, there is a lot of information. Makes me want to move to Davis and take the program.

    Story
    "Informative and Enjoyable"
    If you could sum up Brewmaster's Art in three words, what would they be?

    History and Science of Beer!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Brewmaster's Art?

    Clearest explanation of the effects of hops on the beer I have found.


    What does Charles Bamforth bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He is doing his lectures. It is like taking his class. I would love to take his classes after this book.


    Any additional comments?

    Great introduction to Beer making, but not a home brewing text, but a general overview of the beer industry. Lots of good ideas and explanations the home brewer can appreciate. Excellent lecture style, definitely a Modern Scholar of Beer.

    "Science & history of brewing beer"

    There can no doubt the author knows a thing or two about brewing beer. However this is not so much a brewing master class, but more of a series of lectures covering topics from brewing history to brewing science- and many others in between. Narration is clear, if a little slow.
