Hey, beer nerd. Are you ready to do what all the cool kids are doing? Then you’ll want to check out How to Make Hard Seltzer: Refreshing Recipes for Sparkling Libations, the latest release from Brewers Publications. Written by Chris Colby, celebrated beer author and homebrewer, this guide provides recipes and advice from the country’s best hard seltzer producers on making seltzer for both commercial and home enjoyment. It features everything from brewing details to guidance around the differing government regulations, to cocktail recipes.
“Until now, there has been no guide to navigating this relatively new beverage,” said Colby. “This book is a tool, for anyone interested in making it, whether that be a small craft brewery or a hard seltzer enthusiast.”
Hard seltzer is a skyrocketing category in the world of lifestyle beverages and many craft breweries are expanding their artisanal skills to make this refreshing and popular drink. The beverage continues to hit staggering numbers that suggest this trend is here to stay; according to sales data hard seltzer grew 140% year-over-year in the four week period ending on July 12, 2020.
“As this category continues to grow, adding hard seltzer to the lineup is proving itself to be beneficial as both a short- and long-term business plan for any brewer.” Colby added.
