Our customer reviews

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 so much happens in the world of beers that even a year old book can be outdated, not to mention 14 years.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 more
