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.

Beer geek book
Pretty good book for people who like to try all different types or styles of beer.I have had 2500+ different beers so far and there are still a few in this book I haven't had.Buy this book and start checking off the list.
I have completed about 150+ of the book (about half). Love the journey so far! Just go in knowing that you will not be able to get quit a few of the beers as either they are not sold in the US or they are discontinued. With that knowledge go forth and have fun discovery drinking!
Great Book for Beer Lovers!
I bought this book for my 21 year old nephew and he has had a great time trying to track down the various beers listed. This has opened up his world to more than just the domestic beer found at every grocery store. Great book.
