Thankfully we’ve moved past the age of chips, salted nuts or stale pretzels as the preferred bar snack. With so many breweries offering top-notch ales and lagers, the time has clearly come to elevate the bites we enjoy with beer. From finger sandwiches to sliders, wings beyond Buffalo sauce, tarts, tiramisu, meatballs and veggies, the authors have created a great resource for those who entertain and like to offer a little bit of everything. The book’s wonderful descriptions of the food will have some wishing for more photos, but they’ll still delight in seeing, smelling and tasting the final creations.
