Format: Paperback
With the Good Beer Guide Tim Webb does a superhuman job chronicling the staggering array of breweries, beers, and bars in the Benelux region. I took a trip to Netherlands and Belgium expressly for the beer and for me the book was indispensible. It is organized and indexed very well.

If you are reading this review you are likely at least somewhat interested in Belgian beer and if you are, then you probably can't afford not to use this guide. Not all beers or bars are created equal, even in Belgium. With a limited time and traveler's budget it would be impossible to have savored as many beers as I did without Webb's help.

Because the Benelux countries are among the most pleasant in the world and easiest to get around and travel in, you will not even need a Lonely Planet or Rough Guide--the important stuff (the beer!) is in Tim Webb's book. You can easily find hotels, sightseeing info, and food when you are there, because the region is highly traveler-friendly. However, many of the local beer menus include thousands of offerings and so you can imagine how a guidebook like this might come in handy.

The Good Beer Guide to Belgium will also help you decipher those book-long beer menus and select the right brew for you. With the guide in hand you also might find yourself in towns and villages you never would have visited otherwise, because you were drawn there for a Trappist monastary or a special little bit of brewing history. There are a smattering of other beer guides to the region but none even come close to this one!

This is THE definitive guide to Belgium beers, this book rates every Belgian beer, gives brewery tour info, beer tourism info, Belgian beer bar reviews, addresses, hours open, and provides essential insights into the history, culture, economics, and marketing of beer. If you are a Belgian beer fan, this book is a fantastic resource. If you are visiting Belgium, this book is an essential companion and constant reference. Can't say enough about this book!! Anyone visiting Belgium should bring this book with them.

Buy this book! An awesome book for a gift or for yourself.

Tim's book is refreshingly honest. I'm half way through and won't go to Belgium without it.

We just returned from a trip to Brussels, and we used the book to visit several great places during our visit. Not only was it helpful in finding great pubs and a brewery, It also helped us with the dizzying numbers and varieties of Belgian beers! I just couldn't try them all! If you're going to Belgium with beer as a focus, this book is a "must have"!
