Dust Jacket has small rips at binding / book near new; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; Like the better guide books on wine, this book describes the taste of virtually every beer, foreign and domestic, found in America today. Over 1100 individual brands (more than twice as many as any other book) are reported in detail and rated by panels of tasters. With hundreds of illustrations of labels and beeriana, the book also contains a history of beer, companies, and brands, giving beer drinkers the same sense of their beverage as is regularly afforded wine drinkers. Types and styles of beers are defined and discussed, as is the brewing process itself. The highest rated foreign and domestic beers are compared "in the blind" by a panel of experts, resulting in a list of the top foreign and domestic beers on the market today that will surprise many. This book is the standard reference on the subject, for both the casual and intellectual beer connoisseur.
