    This review is from: 1001 Beers You Must Taste Before You Die (1001 (Universe)) (Hardcover)

    Neatly organized into amber, blond, white, dark, and specialty; crossed referenced by country and brewery, this book offers 1001 (trusting their count, I got too thirsty checking) beers that represent excellence, innovation, and the history of beer. The introduction provides an excellent lesson on the types of beer and how they are brewed (I finally understand the real difference between ale and lager), and then goes right into my new ‘to-do’ list. Each beer has a page with a country of origin, the first year of production, alcohol content, a recommended serving temperature, the brewery, the URL, a bit of history or relevance of the particular beer, and a paragraph on the tasting experience of the beer.

    The ‘tasting notes’ are well written, clear and using objective language, but raise questions. Who provided peer review? How reliable are the descriptions? Have they been independently confirmed? This is my self-appointed mission. 936 beers to go. In the current sample, I have to report that the tasting notes have stood up to careful scrutiny and extensive field testing, and I have found nothing to disagree with yet.

    I enjoyed the book, and must now return to “Samuel Smith’s Taddy Porter”; “A deep ruby beer with chocolate, caramel, and sweet tobacco in the aroma. The taste is tangy and gently bitter…”

    Yup, that one checks good.

    I got 1001 Beers as a Christmas gift as it was on my Amazon Wish List. I have several other beer tasting suggestion books and allthough they were nice they were somewhat cheaply made. I figured this was going to be another cheap book that would be 2 or 3 beers per page with one or two lines about each beer. This could not have been further from the truth. This book is like a bible to beer fans the tasting notes are in depth and informative. The beers are oragnized and easily understood, allthough I tend to use the index to see find the ratings for my favorite beers (Stone, Laginitas and Dogfish). The pictures are excellent and there is some history about the beers that made the book an interesting read.

    This is hands down the best book on beer I have ever read and I have read alot. I love beer and my travels always include stops to local stores to find beers on my bucket list. I collect pint glasses and have over 250 in my collection. I have an entire fridge dedicated to craft beers. I subscribe to both Draft Magazine and All About Beer. The reason I am saying this is that I feel I am more than qualified to judge a book about beer. With that being said 1001 is the best thing i have ever read about the subject! It is a book that I keep my nightstand and glance thru daily when I dream about finding elusive beers.

    My only complaint is that 1001 beers is just too many and in my opinion some real dogs are included in this otherwise remarkable listing of beers.
