Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
No trip to Great Britain would be complete without a visit to a traditional pub. The Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) has produced this guide to more than 200 pubs, authored by beer expert Tierney-Jones (1001 Beers You Must Taste Before You Die), which also ranks real British ales by a number of criteria. The "bests" include brewpubs, family pubs, food pubs, railway pubs, sporting pubs, and many more. The book also features information on that other common beverage, cider, as well as pubs in fiction and pub walks in London and the Lake District. Well illustrated, the guide plots each "best" on a map of Great Britain and also provides an index by region, a guide to British beer, and a description of the brewing process. VERDICT A great guide for those looking for traditional ales throughout Britain and especially for devotees of beer-inspired tourism.—Melissa Stearns, Franklin Pierce Univ. Lib., Rindge, NH
