"When I began brewing at Goose Island in 1988, I read Michael Jackson's World Guide to Beer cover to cover, again and again, inspiring me to explore beer. Beth's well-researched book will inspire a new generation of cider drinkers to explore the magical world of apples."
--Greg Hall, founder of Virtue Cider and former brewmaster at Goose Island Beer Company

"Really, this is not just for beer lovers, but for everyone who wants a whole new world of drinks opened up before their eyes."
--Tom Oliver, cider maker at Oliver's Cider & Perry
