Beer is on of the oldest drinks in the world. Although it might at first seem as though there is less culture surrounding beer than wine, beer has enormous variety and has won countless enthusiasts from those who drink to shake their thirst to beer connoisseurs and collectors. Beer is brewed in small brewed in small breweries based in tiny sheds behind a farm, by monks in their abbeys, and in unimaginable volume by multinational companies. Fortunately each of these beers has its own character and craftsmanship. The great diversity of beer provides everything from cool thirst quenchers for a fine summer's day to pick me-ups for a cold winter evening.

This richly illustrated encyclopedia puts the different beer cultures of the world in focus. More than twelve hundred beers are described to inspire the enthusiast in his or her journey of discovery through the exciting and varied world of beer.
