Product description

"Roger Protz's World Beer Guide" covers every facet of the world's favourite alcoholic drink, from the 'spontaneous fermentation' beers and the fruit beers of Belgium to the revivalist porters and stouts of the Britain and United States and the 'designer' beers of Mexico and Japan. There is also extensive coverage of the rapidly expanding beer markets of Russia, Eastern Europe and China. It provides essential information on what beers to drink country by country, covering the best products of the major brewers and the exciting output of the independents and microbreweries. Hundreds of the world's great brews are described and evaluated, with a guide to their alcoholic content.

Customer reviews

By Gunnar H Eriksson 09 Oct 2009 1

Roger Protz writes great books about beer. So I looked forward to this one - a new book on the world of beers. What a letdown. It proved to be a reprint of a 1995 book with another title. Without revisions it seems, at least for the parts where I have personal knowledge. So I don't trust the rest either. so much happens in the world of beers that even a year old book can be outdated, not to mention 14 years. Total waste of money. Not recommended.
