Classic Stout & Porter
(Classic drinks series)
Roger Protz is one of Brittain's leading beer writers with over a dozen books under his belt. He wrote Classic Stout & Porter (Classic drinks series) in 1997, well into the rebirth of stout and porter afterthe styles languished for several decades. Protz dives into the roots of stout and porter and then traces their history forward. In covering the world renaissance of stout and porter, he covers all the major styles current today. In all, Protz provides detailed historical and tasting information on over 300 different stouts and porters. He finishes up with a handfull of recipes for foods cooked with stout or porter. The book is lavishly illustrated, packed with historical information and well written. I highly recommend it.
