Got beer? This comprehensive, fully illustrated volume on beer by two of the world's leading authorities is more than just an in-depth history of this delightful beverage--from ancient times until the present day. It is also a detailed overview of more than 500 of the greatest beers from around the world, with sections devoted to major beer-producing countries and regions, including information on craft brewing, emerging markets, extreme beers, future-trend forecasts, and more.

About the Author
Tim Webb was born in 1955 and spent most of his formative years in Birmingham, sin city of the industrial Midlands. To say that he attended Medical School there is stretching the truth somewhat but they were eventually kind enough to give him a degree on condition that he went somewhere else. He is now a psychiatrist ministering to troubled minds in Plymouth. He has no interest whatever in treating sexual problems as he finds them all terribly embarrassing. His main interests are self-preservation, Bathams bitter and the quest for a zipless anorak.
