Charting the birth and growth of craft beer across the United States, Tom Acitelli offers an epic, story-driven account of one of the most inspiring and surprising American grassroots movements. In 1975, there was a single craft brewery in the United States; today there are more than 2,000. Now this once-fledgling movement has become ubiquitous nationwide—there's even a honey ale brewed at the White House. This book not only tells the stories of the major figures and businesses within the movement, but it also ties in the movement with larger American culinary developments. It also charts the explosion of the mass-market craft beer culture, including magazines, festivals, home brewing, and more. This entertaining and informative history brims with charming, remarkable stories, which together weave a very American business tale of formidable odds and refreshing success.

Das eigene Leben offen, schonungslos und radikal zum Gegenstand des Schreibens zu machen – dies ist das Konzept, zu dem sich Karl Ove Knausgård in einem furiosen Mammutprojekt entschlossen hat. Radikal ehrlich und mit unglaublicher sprachlicher Kraft nähert er sich in »Sterben«, dem ersten Roman einer sechsbändigen Serie, seinem schwierigen Verhältnis zum Vater, das ihn grundlegend geprägt hat. Als dieser stirbt und er sich mit seinem Bruder daran macht, den Nachlass zu ordnen, bietet sich beiden ein Bild des Grauens. Während sie das Haus reinigen und die Beerdigung vorbereiten, kommen Erinnerungen hoch. Nach und nach entsteht so das Porträt eines Mannes, über den sich in der Kindheit das Gleichgewicht der Familie definierte und den die beiden Söhne unsäglich zu hassen lernten. So sehr hat dieser Vater einen Schatten auf das Leben der Brüder geworfen, dass sie den Bestatter bitten, die Leiche sehen zu dürfen. Erst dann, so sind sich beide einig, werden sie glauben können, dass er wirklich tot ist. Der Sog, der von Knausgårds direkter Art des Erzählens schon mit den ersten Sätzen ausgeht, macht seinen Roman zu einer faszinierenden und erschütternden Lektüre. Gerade weil er so radikal persönlich schreibt, gewinnt sein Text eine schmerzliche Allgemeingültigkeit. Selten ist in einem Stück Literatur so greif- und fühlbar geworden, was jeder Mensch ist: ein einmaliger und unerschöpflicher innerer Kosmos.

The original India Pale Ale was pure gold in a glass; a semi-mythical beer specially invented, in the 19th century, to travel halfway around the world, through storms and tropical sunshine, and arrive in perfect condition for a long, cold drink on an Indian verandah. But although you can still buy beers with ‘IPA’ on the label they are, to be frank, a pale imitation of the original. For the first time in 140 years, a keg of Burton IPA has been brewed with the original recipe for a voyage to India by canal and tall ship, around the Cape of Good Hope; and the man carrying it is the award-winning Pete Brown, Britain’s best beer write. Brazilian pirates and Iranian customs officials lie ahead, but will he even make it that far, have fallen in the canal just a few miles out of Burton? And if Pete does make it to the other side of the world with ‘Barry’ the barrel, one question remains: what will the real IPA taste like? Weaving first-class travel writing with assured comedy, Hops and Glory is both a rollicking, raucous history of the Raj and a wonderfully entertaining, groundbreaking experiment to recreate the finest beer ever produced.

He performs all the accounting and auditing tasks for Katy’s parents in return for a million a year salary and a lease with option to buy agreement for one of the mansions. DNA has shown that he is the father. He has decided not to marry her because he does not truly love her and believes that marriage is a life time commitment. Katy dies of a drug overdose.

They pray in earnest and ask God to forgive them of their sins. They accept Jesus as their savior and decide to make God number one in their lives. James first formally meets Kelsey in the New Orleans Police Headquarters break room. They start playing chess, but neither could accept defeat; The games could not end until they played to a stalemate. Unfortunately, life itself plays out the same way. Fortunately, the goodness of God triumphs over the evil forces of the Devil.

To the ardent Major League baseball fan, statistics make the game. Base hits are exciting, but the rabid fan wants to know how a particular batter fares against a particular pitcher with a particular count with men on base. Or, who holds the record for the most grand slams hit against left-handed pitching after the fourth inning. Stats like these can be found in the team media guides or on team web sites. But what about the other stats and records? For example, what U.S. president holds the record for most season opening ceremonial first pitches? Who are the only two players to be traded for themselves? This is where Moon Shots and Short Hops comes in. For the sincere fan, it answers the questions he never thought to ask. It is a collection of facts and figures about the game that few people know and even fewer have ever thought about. Divided into chapters, each covering one aspect of the game, Moon Shots even has a collection of players who have the same names as rock stars. Jammed with facts and figures, Moon Shots fills in the gaps that watching the game or listening to the commentary just can't provide.

Sabermetrics, the search for objective knowledge about baseball through statistical analysis, has taken over the national pastime. The authors argue that this approach began as a useful corrective but has come to harm baseball. The book demonstrates that the so-called moneyball approach, based on sabermetrics, offers only limited guidance for assembling a team, managing games, and evaluating player performance. Equally important, the obsession with statistics and vision of the game as wholly predictable obscure baseball’s spectacular improvisational quality. It is the game’s unquantifiable and relentless capacity to surprise—the source of wonder so central to its greatest stories and personalities—that informs any real appreciation of baseball.
