    This review is from: The World Atlas of Beer: The Essential Guide to the Beers of the World (Hardcover)

    The amount of attention paid to cocktails, whiskey, wine, and others is a flood compared with the drips and drops of books on beer. Instead, beer enthusiasts depend on festivals, magazines, blogs, beer labels and other random sources to learn about the world of beer. Now, however, we have a new and wonderful resource that will be a companion on my beer journeys, whether they go from the fridge to the couch or across oceans.

    Beaumont and Webb build on Jackson’s classic 35-year-old World Guide to Beer. They cover basics like charting where beer comes from, how it’s made, what goes in it, who makes it, and, most interestingly to me, where it’s made. Open up the book to a random page or look up a specific term–either way you’re going to come out of the book knowing more than when you went in.

    The scope is broad, yet focused. It succeeds in drawing a clear and detailed portrait of where brewing is around the world today. Maps, pictures, charts and other graphics help keep interest high and get a lot of important information out there.

    It’s amazing to me how clearly the authors document the explosive and ongoing growth that is occurring in beer consumption, creation, and distribution. We can now enjoy more beer varieties from more breweries in more countries than ever. We are truly blessed with beer today, and this book celebrates the craft beer revolution for which I am very, very grateful.

    This review is from: The World Atlas of Beer: The Essential Guide to the Beers of the World (Hardcover)

    I finished this book a little while ago after getting my first copy at the Great Canadian Beer Fest. As was suggested this is indeed an excellent snapshot of who’s brewing what and where in the world as of when it went to print. It surely opened my eyes and now serves as a great guide to go in search of new beer as I travel.

    This book is very nicely written with plenty of lovely photographs throughout. In this brand new age of excellent beer reference material i.e. the “Oxford Companion to Beer” and “The Brewmasters Table” this book does a great job of filling in the beer fan and the curious as to who’s out there brewing and where we can find it travelling the world.

    The neophyte is not forgotten here as the book starts out with descriptions of what beer is, how it’s made, and a summary of its history. Even for seasoned veterans in the world of beer the quality of writing still keeps these topics engaging. What follows is a wealth of research and information put down in a sensible guidebook fashion that the reader can enjoy cover to cover or open at any page.

    It is amazing to see where we have come since Michael Jackson wrote his first look at the world as it pertains to beer 35 years ago, and if the authors are right the future looks pretty bright.

    Well done gentlemen, thank you for taking the time to put this together for all of us out here in beer land, I for one appreciate the obvious amount of work you put into this book.
