Before Ben surveys the world of craft beer he outlines how to Evaluate Beers, their Flavours,the Ingredients and various Glassware (plus canned craft beer!) and an interesting list of the best Craft Beer Bars in USA,Europe, Rest of World and UK.
Into the main part of the book Ben has chosen 500 'Craft Beers' from all over the world some bottled, others on draught and then sorted into - 'Quench', Lager, Hop, Grain, Classic, Curiosities, Sipper, Wild and Wood - (funny names, but explained in their sections). Each beer is described both its brewing, taste, and history and the brewery plus a visual image, The selection is irrespective of their brewery origin. Interspersed are half-page descriptions of special breweries and their beers and longer brewery profiles plus beer style analyses.
Very well illustrated, vast selection of beers from all over, interesting beer descriptions all with enthusiasm.
