The Ultimate Beer Lover's Cookbook
The Ultimate Beer Lover's Cookbook by John Schlimm, published by Cumberland House Publishing on May 15, 2008, contains more than 400 food and drink recipes that all use beer as an ingredient. The cookbook is the largest and most comprehensive beer cookbook ever published, and was called the "definitive beer recipe sourcebook".
The Ultimate Beer Lover's Cookbook recipes range from scrambled eggs made with beer at breakfast and a cheese steak sandwich with onion rings or a beer burger and Chocolate Beershake for lunch, to a surf 'n' turf beer-infused combo of lobster and steak for dinner and a midnight snack of chocolate-dipped strawberries.
In 2009, the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards named The Ultimate Beer Lover's Cookbook The Best Beer Book in the United States and The Best Beer Book in the World. That same year, The Beer Lover's Cookbook was released as a smaller paperback adaptation of the original, with just over 300 food and drink recipes.
In August 2014, John released a sequel titled The Ultimate Beer Lover’s Happy Hour: Over 325 Recipes for Your Favorite Bar Snacks & Beer Cocktails. It features bar bites – from Sizzling Sriracha Peanuts to Taproom Tacos to Blitzed Bean Soup – and beer cocktails, chuggers, shots, shooters, chasers, punches, floats, and shakes, with nearly 1,000 related pairing suggestions using today’s most popular craft and seasonal beer styles.
John's other cookbooks include The Cheesy Vegan, Grilling Vegan Style, and The Tipsy Vegan.
