Synopsis

Pocket Beer Book by Stephen Beaumont, Tim Webb

From the Bock beers of Germany to the Trappist beers of Belgium, the complex bitters and stouts of Britain to the cutting-edge brews of North America, this expert selection covers the extraordinary variety the world's beers now have to offer. Tasting notes, organised by country, provide succinct commentary on the chosen beers and cover the brewery and each beer's key characteristics. With thousands of beers covered, this book encompasses more familiar established beers as well as exciting new discoveries from the myriad craft breweries that are emerging around the world. Punctuating the tasting notes is information on 'beer destinations', specific places where you can best experience a beer in situ. An extensive introductory chapter to the book also covers styles of beer and emerging trends. This landmark guide provides beer lovers with easy access to an expert overview and puts a world of superb beers at their disposal.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
