Editorial Reviews

(A) sweeping panoramic view of the global beer landscape. Stephen Beaumont and Tim Webb...cover 3,500 beers from 65 countries, succinctly coupling each with information on how to enjoy the beer in its original culture and setting, as well as taste ratings indicated by stars.

— SOMM Journal

This collection of brief reviews of more than 3,500 different beers from across the globe is a handy reference for bars and shops in far-off cities where the beers are unfamiliar and choosing one can feel like roulette. Sipping a glass of ale while flipping through the pages is certainly more tactile than Googling for Internet reviews, and probably more enjoyable too.

— Los Angeles Times

Toronto's Stephen Beaumont teams up with England's Tim Webb to bring a comprehensive look at the world of craft and traditional beer from around the globe -- 65 countries in total. The 3,500 beers included in the book (500 more than last year's edition) is a great guide to help navigate beer shelves anywhere you go. It's small enough to pack in your carry-on and bring with you on your travels, but is simply jam-packed with info about breweries, beer-producing regions, styles and more.

— Winnipeg Free Press

The opening chapter explains what constitutes a craft beer, introduces beer styles and provides guidance on pairing beer with meals, including breakfast. Sorted by country, the reviews provide succinct commentary on each beer, its key characteristics and the region where it can best be experienced in its original culture and setting -- ranging from traditional favourites to exciting discoveries.
