Scratch and Sniff Guide

According to the authors of The Scratch & Sniff Guide to Beer, “to truly know a beer, it isn’t enough to taste it.” We agree but what if you’re saving yourself for marriage?

Divided into eight chapters, each segment introduces readers to a new aspect of beer like breaking down the beer-making process, helpful how-tos like “how to read a beer label, fascinating anecdotes about the origins and evolution of many different beers.
