Editorial Reviews

Jim Wilmer
Brutally honest, brilliant food-to-beer guide and a good deal of hilarious commentary. Studying it can only mprove your beer.
Beer Critic, Dayton Daily News
Patrick Orr
Have you ever tried to remember the name of favorite craft brew from another city, but couldn't quite remember what it was, or why you liked it so much? Do you like to argue the merits of particular beers, and wish you had some info to back you up every now and then? Would you like a travel size, comprehensive Zagat-like guide to over 2,700 of the best beers the world has to offer? For a reasonable $9.95? If your answer is yes to any of the three questions above, buy a copy of The Beer Guide edited by RateBeer.com s long time editor Josh Oakes for a mere $9.95. The 296-page, 'The Beer Guide,' which fits nicely in a backpack or a back pocket, has short but authoritative descriptions on over 2,700 beers. The descriptions were edited and selected by Oakes from RateBeer.com's vast archive of public reviews. RateBeer.com has over 30,000 contributing members. The Guide also has a handy chapter on beer style descriptions, tasting notes, and food/beer tasting guide. 'The Beer Guide' could earn a permanent place in your bathroom, briefcase, or bar top. It also will make for a good stocking stuffer this Christmas.

The Beer Guide has a great beer-food pairing cheat sheet.

Rick Lyle
It allows you to take along the thoughts of 30,000 RateBeer.com contributors in an easy to carry package. The book also includes a beer and food pairing guide by Stan Hieronymus. The neat thing about the book is that you can quickly get ratings for everything from Schlitz Malt Liquor (one star: 'It's like watching a mime get run over') to Westvleteren Abt 12 (five stars: 'Wonderfully madeirized malt with raisins, prunes and dates in aroma and nice spices wafting through.').

Raise your beer brainpower: The latest edition of Web site RateBeer's 'The Beer Guide;' is just out as a pocket-sized edition from Fort Worth's Savory House Press, with tens of thousands of beer drinkers putting together Zagat-style reviews, often dead-on and perceptive and sometimes hilarious, like this zing at Pabst's NA: 'Smells absolutely awful, rotting vegetables, festering bread and regurgitated corn.;' The little publishing house, incidentally, is run by Barry Shlachter , who in another life is a highly decorated reporter for the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

Some beer drinkers like to read. For them, a good resource is: 'The Beer Guide,' edited by Josh Oakes, which describes and rates 2,700 domestic and imported beers.
