Cocktails on Tap: The Art of Mixing Spirits and Beer
Bartender and cocktail consultant Jacob Grier offers up more than fifty thirst-quenching concoctions featuring beer. Long considered a beverage best enjoyed on its own, beer has now become a favorite ingredient for top bartenders around the world. In Cocktails on Tap, Grier collects the best of these contemporary creations alongside forgotten classics.
While the Mai Ta-IPA adds a refreshing note to a tropical favorite, the Green Devil boosts a powerful Belgian beer with gin and a rinse of absinthe. In Cocktails on Tap, the vast range of today’s beers, from basic lagers to roasty stouts and sour Belgian ales, is shaken up for mixologists looking to add some spice—and hop—to their repertoire.
“Grier is a masterful guide through the wickedly creative terrain of beer cocktails, offering not just delightful recipes, but history and cultural commentary, too. Connoisseurs and neophytes alike will find much to savor, and the latter will appreciate Jacob’s tutelage in cocktail basics. Grab a copy and start mixing!” —Maureen Ogle, author of Ambitious Brew: The Story of American Beer
“Jacob Grier was at the forefront of the beer cocktail renaissance before many of us had ever contemplated the idea of a beer cocktail. His vast knowledge of beer and passionate dedication to this area of mixology is certain to push the craft of cocktails forward in a positive new direction.” —Jeffrey Morgenthaler, author of The Bar Book
