UK brewing has seen unprecedented growth in the last decade. Breweries of all shapes and sizes are flourishing and the range of home-grown beers available in pubs and shops has never been so diverse. British beer consumers have never had it so good and, headed by real ale, a 'craft' beer revolution is sweeping the country. CAMRA have brought together some the Britain's top beer writers and spoken to key figures in British brewing - hop growers, maltsters, brewers, pub owners and critics - to celebrate Britain's Beer Revolution. These experts look behind the beer labels and shine a spotlight on what makes British beer so good. National and regional brewers with generations of tradition rub shoulders with new micro-brewers, and popular classic beers jostle for space at the bar with modern interpretations and innovative new masterpieces. All the brewers featured are dedicated to one thing...Making great British beer.

Sinkende Geburtenraten, unkontrollierte Masseneinwanderung und eine lange Tradition des verinnerlichten Misstrauens: Europa scheint unfähig zu sein, seine Interessen zu verteidigen. Douglas Murray, gefeierter Autor, sieht in seinem neuen Bestseller Europa gar an der Schwelle zum Freitod – zumindest scheinen sich seine politischen Führer für den Selbstmord entschieden zu haben. Doch warum haben die europäischen Regierungen einen Prozess angestoßen, wohl wissend, dass sie dessen Folgen weder absehen können noch im Griff haben? Warum laden sie Tausende von muslimischen Einwanderern ein, nach Europa zu kommen, wenn die Bevölkerung diese mit jedem Jahr stärker ablehnt? Sehen die Regierungen nicht, dass ihre Entscheidungen nicht nur die Bevölkerung ihrer Länder auseinandertreiben, sondern letztlich auch Europa zerreißen werden? Oder sind sie so sehr von ihrer Vision eines neuen europäischen Menschen, eines neuen Europas und der arroganten Überzeugung von deren Machbarkeit geblendet? Der Selbstmord Europas ist kein spontan entstandenes Pamphlet einer vagen Befindlichkeit. Akribisch hat Douglas Murray die Einwanderung aus Afrika und dem Nahen Osten nach Europa recherchiert und ihre Anfänge, ihre Entwicklung sowie die gesellschaftlichen Folgen über mehrere Jahrzehnte ebenso studiert wie ihre Einmündung in den alltäglich werdenden Terrorismus. Eine beeindruckende und erschütternde Analyse der Zeit, in der wir leben, sowie der Zustände, auf die wir zusteuern.

"I am not a busy person or a lover of insanely interesting things, but I do love great bull$hit." - Dev Drake, The Communist Beer Manifesto Preview this book to imbibe the beer facts, brew myths, drinking life trends, and history, psychoanalyzed in such an entertaining way, that teetotalers are reaching for the bottle! Written by a non-alcoholic non Bible belter whose beer opinions no one values whatsoever. The only book on beer you'll ever need to read! Craft drinks are here to stay. Distilling locally made craft products with higher quality ingredients, which arguably started in the United Kingdom in the 1970's and spread to the USA in the 1980's, is now a worldwide phenomenon. If you are consistently walking into a bar or bottle shop and select your beer based on the page of the Bible you're currently reading or what your less-informed-than-you-think friends advise you, maybe it's a good idea to become a bit more informed. The dividends will pay off in the long run. How much could it hurt to have some brew knowledge about the art or science (or joke) of modern beer tasting? Or how that semi-pricey Belgian beer you're drinking may really be a local beer in a brew under license arrangement, and if there is a difference between the imported product and the licensed one? What about the right craft drinks to serve at a party? Or, with men, is drinking beer truly a health tip for champions? Beer & brew topics you'll want to read and learn about In sixty-two wildly entertaining chapters, none so long that your shortened Information Age attention span has you drifting off, you'll learn a helluva lot of insanely interesting beer bull$hit. There's actually nothing in this beer book which would qualify as bullsheißa, as the Belgian and German brewmasters prefer to call it. Spread throughout the book are also amazing chapters on what makes each individual craft beer style unique in the distilling process: India pale ales, blonde beers, amber ales, lambics, fruit beers, barleywines. You'll learn the differences between a lager and ale in such an engaging way that you don't feel like falling asleep for a change. There are individual chapters on the beer history and infrastructure of various nations and regions to justify why their beers are traditionally excellent, good, or horrible. Some of this information you could find on the internet right now. However, much of what you'll read on craft drinks elsewhere qualifies as bullsheißa. When drinking with a lot of men, you'll always hear the conventional story that India pale ales get their name because this was the type of beer, heavily preserved by necessity, that the British exported to their troops in India. This is word-of-mouth bullsheißa spouted so often that people thinks it's true. Other information presented you won't find anywhere else. We compiled the statistics ourselves and drew the brilliant conclusions you can boast as your own to the onlookers you'll soon amaze. Be considered an expert from reading just this one book. Unless you're a sworn tee-totaler, your drinking life today consists of better beers now than it ever has. Wouldn't it be an asset to learn enough in one book so as to be considered, by most, a beer expert and accomplishing the task while you're entertained endlessly on page after page? There may be more knowledge packed into a thousand page beer bible, but you and I know that you're not going to read one of those, and bibles/encyclopedias aren't renowned for their humor and entertainment value. We have too much information available to us today. We need it curated in an easy-to-understand and interesting way. Therein lies the raison d'etre of The Busy Person's Collection Of Insanely Interesting Beer Bull$hit. You're busy We know that. We listened. Here's the answer: a copy of this wondrous read, put on your phone, to dazzle your peers the next time you're on a beer crawl at a fancy Belgian or craft bar. Cheers.

Ein verstörter junger Mann bittet den privaten Ermittler Cormoran Strike um Hilfe bei der Aufklärung eines Verbrechens, das er – so glaubt er – als Kind mit angesehen hat. Strike ist beunruhigt: Billy hat offensichtlich psychische Probleme und kann sich nur an wenig im Detail erinnern, doch er wirkt aufrichtig. Bevor Strike ihn allerdings ausführlich befragen kann, ergreift der Mann panisch die Flucht. Um Billys Geschichte auf den Grund zu gehen, folgen Strike und Robin Ellacott – einst seine Assistentin, jetzt seine Geschäftspartnerin – einer verschlungenen Spur, die sie durch die zwielichtigen Ecken Londons, in die oberen Kreise des Parlaments und zu einem prachtvollen, doch düsteren Herrenhaus auf dem Land führt. Zugleich verläuft auch Strikes eigenes Leben alles andere als gradlinig: Er hat es als Ermittler zu Berühmtheit gebracht und kann sich nicht länger unauffällig hinter den Kulissen bewegen. Noch dazu ist das Verhältnis zu seiner früheren Assistentin schwieriger denn je – zwar ist Robin für ihn geschäftlich mittlerweile unersetzlich, ihre private Beziehung ist jedoch viel komplizierter ...

Every entry from the original edition has been readdressed, rewritten, and made fuller, with more suggestions for places to stay, restaurants to visit, festivals to check out. And throughout, the book is more budget-conscious, starred restaurants and historic hotels such as the Ritz,but also moderately priced gems that don’t compromise on atmosphere or charm. The world is calling. Time to answer.

Alcohol consumption goes to the very roots of nearly all human societies. Different countries and regions have become associated with different sorts of alcohol, for instance, the “beer culture” of Germany, the “wine culture” of France, Japan and saki, Russia and vodka, the Caribbean and rum, or the “moonshine culture” of Appalachia. Wine is used in religious rituals, and toasts are used to seal business deals or to celebrate marriages and state dinners. However, our relation with alcohol is one of love/hate. We also regulate it and tax it, we pass laws about when and where it’s appropriate, we crack down severely on drunk driving, and the United States and other countries tried the failed “Noble Experiment” of Prohibition. While there are many encyclopedias on alcohol, nearly all approach it as a substance of abuse, taking a clinical, medical perspective (alcohol, alcoholism, and treatment). The SAGE Encyclopedia of Alcohol examines the history of alcohol worldwide and goes beyond the historical lens to examine alcohol as a cultural and social phenomenon, as well—both for good and for ill—from the earliest days of humankind.
