This update of Jackson's landmark World Guide to Beer (Prentice-Hall, 1977) follows the format of the earlier book and includes many of the same photographs, but it also features a completely rewritten text with revised maps and charts which cover the changes in the international beer scene over the past decade. In addition to discussing the beer renaissance of the 1980s and the differences between beer styles and brewing techniques, Jackson leads the reader on a worldwide tour of the great brewing nations--critically describing the beer culture of Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Caribbean, and Australia, with North America given expanded coverage in this book. The greatest emphasis, however, is on the beers of Europe. Even libraries owning the earlier edition should consider purchase.

Fanatics in the brewing renaissance, since the early 1980's.
This book helped get me going. Michael Jackson is every bit as adept
a writer as his musical counterpart is a singer. Not only does this book
discuss beer but it has marvelous pictures, fascinating glimpses of
history and also serves as an indispenable travel guide. If you want
to drink the original Czech beer serving as the prototype for Budweiser
in Ceske Budejovice this book can get you there. If you want to
understand why Guiness Stout is Guiness Stout this book can do it. If you
want to find 500 year old pubs in Prague, fantastic beer bars in
Belgium, or world class brewers in America, this book is the
best available and reads like a Clavell novel. Each time I travel I read
about the area I am going to, copy down the name of some of the bars
and restaurants, and I have made friends for 20 years as a result.
