Editorial Reviews

Review

"The Beer Drinker's Bible belongs at every bar, every restaurant, every bathroom and every desk. Entertaining, extremely informative, and amazingly interesting, this Bible will resolve a lot of debates, change a few habits and open a few doors. Gregg Smith is well recognized as our best beer historian." -- Daniel Bradford, All About Beer Magazine

"A bunch of the boys were sitting around the saloon the other night when the conversation turned to whether the glasses we were drinking from were lions or Hogarths. Luckily, we had a copy of The Beer Drinker's Bible at hand. Like the real Bible, this one contains answers to many of life's most pressing questions, but all these have to do with quotes, obscure words and phrases pertaining to beer, brewing and quaffing." -- Dick Kreck, The Denver Post

The Beer Drinker's Bible is just was I've been looking for (and a perfect addition to your Friday Night Bible Study). Loaded with trivia and obscure facts virtually impossible to find elsewhere and tailor made for settling those inevitable late night arguments. I've won more than a few beers thanks to this handy tome and you can too!!

Beer, what more can I say... This book covers it all. No serious drinker should imbibe without this book on the shelf at home. It is great for solving all of your tavern quandries. I have yet to find a question that the book doesn't cover. Get yours today, and raise a pint... Cheers!

A great reference book for people who love beer and beer history. Information is listed in alphabetical order, with a brief description of each entry. Keep this one handy. However, it is not a conventional type book, it's more of a fun-fact book. BTW the author is a professional brewer and writer.

Great book. Lots of explainations. Such as, Ale vs. Pale ale, current time and originally. Great to have around for quick reads. For me, I read this book one chapter at a time. It never kept my attention to continue reading more than a chapter in a single sitting. It's a great gift and great book to read more like a magazine.
