Overview


Meet Pete Brown—beer journalist, beer drinker, and author of an irreverent book about British beer, Man Walks Into A Pub. One day, Pete's world is rocked when he discovers several countries produce, consume, and celebrate beer far more than the British do. The Germans claim they make the best beer in the world, the Australians consider its consumption a patriotic duty, the Spanish regard lager as a trendy youth drink and the Japanese have built a skyscraper in the shape of a foaming glass of their favorite brew. At home, meanwhile, people seem to be turning their backs on the great British pint. What's going on? Drinking in more than 300 bars in 27 towns, through 13 different countries and four continents, Pete puts on 10 pounds and does irrecoverable damage to his health in the pursuit of saloon-bar enlightenment.

Meet the Author

Pete Brown was born in 1968 in Barnsley, South Yorkshire. He escaped to university in 1986 to avoid going down the pit (though they were all soon closed, so he needn't have bothered). Since 1991 he has worked in advertising, specializing in marketing beer. He has appeared regularly on television as a beer expert and writes on beer for a variety of publications. He lives in London.
