"An invaluable resource. . . . Mika Laitinen's exhaustive research
and experimentation has resulted in a fascinating, highly readable,
and eminently accessible guidebook for brewing like a Viking."
Jereme Zimmerman, author of Make Mead Like a Viking and Brew Beer
Like a Yeti
"Just when you think the canon of beer literature cannot grow any richer, a book like Mika Laitinen's comes along. This is a fascinating and substantive account of a typically overlooked corner of the brewing universe, and is sure to stand as the definitive word on traditional farmhouse ales for quite some time." Tom Acitelli, author of The Audacity of Hops
