In this second edition of their Pocket Beer Book, Stephen Beaumont and Tim Webb have collaborated with a team of international beer experts to create the definitive and most up-to-date guide to the best beers in the world.
As featured in beer-loving Great Food Magazine, this landmark guide provides beer fans with easy access to an expert overview and puts a world of superb beers at your disposal.
Written by two of the world's leading beer experts, with the help of a team of international contributors, The Pocket Beer Book 2015 takes you from the Bock beers of Germany to the Trappist beers of Belgium, the complex bitters and stouts of Britain to the cutting-edge brews of North America. This expert selection covers the extraordinary variety the world's beers now have to offer.
Tasting notes, organised by country, provide succinct commentary on the chosen beers and cover the brewery and each beer's key characteristics. With 4,300 beers featured, this book encompasses more familiar established beers as well as exciting new discoveries from the myriad craft breweries that are emerging around the world, covering 80 countries.
Punctuating the tasting notes is information on 'beer destinations', specific places where you can best experience a beer in situ. An extensive introductory chapter to the book also covers styles of beer and food and beer pairings.
