★★★★★By Debbie S on 24 Sep 2015
"If you're already brewing craft brews or spirits, this is a good book for you. Not for beginners, though. Sometimes too much information is not a good thing."
★★★★☆By Darren I on 04 Aug 2015
"This is one of those books that you may not need, yet it has the immense potential to become a must read just because of its sheer curiosity value. Of course, enjoying alcohol for its taste rather than its numbing effects may help too! If you have ever wanted to start your own microbrewery, distillery or cidery then it is even better!
Perhaps the best part of this book is its use of real-world examples; interviews from people who are doing this for a living, sharing their experiences both positive and negative. No doubt a few prospective business owners have a rose-tinted, romantic view about owning a microbrewery or similar venture, so if the book can throw a bit of cold water (beer? wine?) over you at the same time, whilst still providing focused encouragement and cautious advice, should that be a bad thing?
There is everything to like about this book, especially if you are a curious sort. You don’t clearly have to have any real business plans to get some enjoyment and value out of this book; if you do it is an additional, valuable bonus.
