    Great book for the one who likes exploring the colorful selections of beer!

    I gave this book to my fiance' for Valentine's Day and he loved it. He has been looking through it ever since. He has started planning beers to try and beer tours to take.

    Background: I brought this book as a Christmas gift. Me and my


    Background: I brought this book as a Christmas gift. Me and my friends love beer...maybe too much :)...in particular we love going to pour houses (think World of Beer) trying new and different beers. We also have talked about doing some beer tasting.

    Review: I severely delayed wrapping this book, because I keep thumbing though it. The book is amazing, it is extremely informative, well written, easy to read , and excepetionally well organized. The book is made of very high quality materials with a thick, very sturdy hard cover, and glossy, high quality paper. The pictures look great! The book includes information on different types of beer, different styles, beer tours, and so on. Most importantly, the book is organized by geographical location, making it very easy to explore all of the best beers the world over.
    Please allow me to hammer this point in: the best quality of this book is how encompassing it is. It literally includes hundreds of the best beers from all over the world.

    Structure: The book presents the beers by brewery, by geographical location. There is a picture of the breweries leading beer, followed by an paragraph length information section of the brewery, including location, then an thorough highlight/explanation of the brewery's two best/most popular beers (the bigger breweries highlight four beers). Then throughout the book there is one/two/four page segments devoted to exploring a particular aspect of beer (i.e. different fruit beers).

    Long story short: Me buddy loved the book. I brought another one for myself :). And we agreeding to use the book to make our exploring beers more focused. So now we pick what beer we want to try, go try the beer, then write a big checkmark in the book, the date we tried, and give it a rating (Terrible to Great).

    Executive Summary:
    1) High Quality Materials
    2) Encompassing of 100's of beers the world over
    3) Very well organized
    4) Easy to use/read/enjoy (unlike the Oxford Companion to Beer)

    Didn't read it

    It was on a long back order. As I wanted it for Christmas, I cancelled the order. Frankly, I was extremely disappointed !!
