Brewing With Wheat Explores One of the World's Most Interesting Beer Styles

Boulder, CO • March 24, 2010 – Brewers Publications, a division of the Brewers Association, announces the publication of its latest title, Brewing With Wheat: The ‘Wit’ and ‘Weizen’ of World Wheat Beer Styles by Stan Hieronymus.

Brewing With Wheat is a historical journey through the global development of beer styles brewed with wheat. Hieronymus visits the ancestral homes of the world's most interesting styles—Hoegaarden, Kelheim, Leipzig, Berlin and even Portland, Oregon—to find out first-hand how these beers are made today.

With ample coverage of American wheat beers as well as Belgian white/wit, this volume explores both tradition and innovation in brewing with wheat. Hieronymus shares myths, facts, recipes and brewing and fermentation processes of a range of global wheat beer styles.

The book is replete with brewing details and recipes for even the most curious brewer—and answers to compelling questions such as "Why is my beer cloudy?" and "With or without lemon?"

A long-time Real Beer page editor, Hieronymus is also the author of Brew Like a Monk, which investigates the heavenly brews of Belgium and is published by Brewers Publications.

"In Brewing With Wheat, Stan Hieronymus has given homebrewers, craft brewers, and beer enthusiasts alike a wheat-fuelled flux-capacitor that will transport them from region to region around the world," said Sam Calagione, founder Dogfish Head Craft Brewery. "This page-by-page journey will satisfy the reader’s thirst for the knowledge, history and science needed for producing and enjoying the wide spectrum of wheat beers."

"Stan Hieronymus has filled a giant, gaping hole in the beer literature with this book," said Randy Mosher, author of Radical Brewing and Tasting Beer. "And once again, he has done it with crisp, engaging prose, loaded with rock solid information, much of it directly from those who brew these delicious, but technically challenging, beers every day."

The 200-page book includes full-color photos, illustrations and recipes. Copies are available for purchase at or by calling 888.822.6273. Members of the media may request review copies by contacting Meghan Storey at 303.447.0816 x 166.
