Amazon.com Review

Beer, glorious beer! Josh Leventhal's Beer Lover's Companion pays tribute to ales and lagers, bitter and bocks from every corner of the globe. Written with amateur quaffers in mind, this tall, slender book helps distinguish between dozens of beer styles such as brown ales and black beers, cream ales and wheat beers--and each brew is put through a taste and strength test. This book will certainly make your next hop to the local public house a much more pleasant experience!

The book's strength lies in its section on international beers. Each country is divided by region, exemplifying the breweries and brews of each local area. In Britain (well known for its many fine beers), over 50 breweries are showcased. John Smith's Brewery, famous for its Webster's Yorkshire Bitter, has been in the hops business since 1883. Boddingtons in Manchester has been brewing even longer, since 1778.

Illustrated throughout with full-color photographs of various bottles and brews, this is the perfect book to pack for international beer pilgrimages. --Naomi Gesinger --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This illustrated guide offers both the connoisseur and new aficionado the essential information to help find perfect beers for each individual taste, from hoppy ales to hardy stouts to crisp hefeweizens. Over 400 of the greatest beers on earth are included:

Organized by brewery, each listing explores the flavors of the most significant beers and includes a one-to-three-mug rating by a professional taster. You'll also discover where each brew is made and how each region's production method and ingredients vary,

This is not the most informative book, but it is interesting in that it contains recipes that are touted as being able to pass as famous commercial brands.

I would use this book as a stocking stuffer for the brewer in your life. Its a light read, and might be lost on a beginning brewer who is more concerned with learning the brewing process.
