Format: Hardcover
Together with Jancis Robinson's Oxford Companion to wine, this book is the first authoritative one on the history, culture, and practice of brewing. A must for any beer enthusiast.

This encyclopedia of beer is mesmerizing and fantastic as a reference on my shelf. Great if you want to learn more about beer, and fantastic for the home brewer. You won't read this from front to cover, but you will find yourself spending many hours flipping through its pages.

The Encyclopedia style, (A-Z) is not the greatest in an e-book but the content is interesting and informative. No more beer with unknown additives for me.

Format: Hardcover
Probablement l'ouvrage le plus complet jamais écris. un encyclopédie qui se lit littéralement comme un livre! Couvre réellement tout les aspects et les éléments concernant la bière, sa fabrication, sa chimie, ses différentes dérivations, etc.

Un encyclopédie à posséder pour tout amateur de bières

Santé!
