From Belgian fruit beers to hoppy cask ales, small-production microbrews to Czech Republic lagers, this is a personal and comprehensive portfolio of international beers compiled by one of the world's leading beer writers. In this unique and beautifully illustrated collection, he has distilled decades of beer knowledge into an entertaining and indispensable guide to the ales that no beer lover should miss. The book divides beers by type, including bitters, best bitters, pilsners, brown and mild ales, pale ales, extra strong beers and bitters, old ales and barley wines, golden ales, porters and stouts, alt and amber ales, fruit beers, and beires de garde, each comprising an alphabetical listing of the beers. Many of the entries are fully illustrated, and each beer comes complete with a box panel for adding your own tasting notes. Information on the country of origin, beer strength, brewery, and a detailed description of the beer and its history are also given.
A companion volume to 300 Beers to Try Before You Die!, this showcase of the best Belgian beers encourages both connoisseurs and newcomers to sample for themselves. Written by internationally known beer writers Tim Webb and Joris Pattyn, the book provides readers with a glossary of Belgian beer styles, a map of Belgium with featured breweries. Detailed and enthusiastic tasting notes for each beer by Joris Pattyn explore the many dimensions of Belgian beers. It is lavishly illustrated throughout with photographs showing the beers themselves, where and how they are brewed, Belgian beer bars, and some of the characters involved in Belgian brewing. Visitor information includes contact details for each brewery along with any opening times and details of brewery taps. United States and UK importers are detailed, and each entry details the ABV, bottle sizes, and whether the beer is available on draught.
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.

In Appetites stellt Anthony Bourdain seine Lieblingsgerichte vor, die ihm schon während seiner Kindheit, später in seiner Karriere als Koch und natürlich auf seinen Reisen ans Herz gewachsen sind. Doch Appetites ist weit mehr als ein Kochbuch. Es ist ein Kunstwerk. Ein Manifest. Eine Reflexion über das (richtige) Leben und ein Schlachtplan für die Küche, der dabei hilft, Gäste mit atemberaubender Effizienz in Schrecken zu versetzen. Die Fotos sind rebellisch, frech, ungeschönt, unkonventionell. Sie zeigen, wie es in einer Küche wirklich zugeht, und zelebrieren Bourdains Bad-Boy-Image auf schaurig-schöne Weise. Die Gerichte schmecken dennoch fantastisch und sollten – in Bourdains Augen – wirklich von jedem gekocht werden können.

"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.

Completely Revised and Updated with Over 200 New Entries

The world’s bestselling travel book is back in a more informative, more experiential, more budget-friendly full-color edition. A #1 New York Times bestseller, 1,000 Places reinvented the idea of travel book as both wish list and practical guide. As Newsweek wrote, it “tells you what’s beautiful, what’s fun, and what’s just unforgettable— everywhere on earth.” And now the best is better. There are 600 full-color photographs. Over 200 entirely new entries, including visits to 28 countries like Lebanon, Croatia, Estonia, and Nicaragua, that were not in the original edition. There is an emphasis on experiences: an entry covers not just Positano or Ravello, but the full 30-mile stretch along the Amalfi Coast. 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.
