The Wildcrafting Brewer: Creating Unique Drinks and Boozy Concoctions from Nature’s Ingredients
By Pascal Baudar
$29.95, Chelsea Green Publishing

There’s been a resurgence of interest lately in foraged or place-based beers, as evident by a number of new books on the subject. This latest is less about beer—especially as most know it—and brewing here loosely refers to the production of beers, sodas and wines. While the book doesn’t focus on traditional or modern styles, homebrewers will discover how to forage for ingredients and work them into the brewing process, whether they’re using one of the many recipes in the book or something different altogether. Baudar’s passion for nature comes through in his writing, and the rustic photos are both pleasing to the eye and helpful for identification purposes. —Daniel Hartis
