The Pocket Beer Guide: The Essential Handbook to the Very Best Beers in the World by Tim Webb and Stephen Beaumont
Book: The Pocket Beer Guide: The Essential Handbook to the Very Best Beers in the World
Author: Tim Webb/Stephen Beaumont
Narrator (if applicable):n/a
Release date (if applicable): Published
Synopsis: The authors present detailed bio and "taste" information on some of the world's greatest microbreweries. Can't forget the calendar of beer festivals from around the world!
My rating: 5 Stars
My opinion: An absolute must buy for beer connoisseurs. Although the greater majority of people wouldn't be able to visit all the breweries listed, the information was amazing and incredibly detail oriented.
I loved the breakdowns of beers for various meals and dishes. I must admit the dessert and breakfast recommendations were kind of shocking.
I found it absolutely amazing, particularly as a rare beer drinker, the ratings/traits/breakdowns in regional/"local" beers,such as one would see in wine books.
This book was so detailed, yet so concise. I kept thinking of those travel books that critiques hotels and such.
