World Beer explores the renaissance of beer, explaining the brewing process, beer history, and the finer points of beer appreciation. The stories of major beer producing nations are explored in depth, focusing on their local beer styles and the breweries that made them famous.
From the face-smacking intensity of ultra-hopped IPAs to sweet-and-smoky porters, World Beer showcases beers by brewery, telling the story of today's top brewing innovators and their brews. There are evocative tasting notes for both core and seasonal beers in addition to food pairing suggestions to get the most out of each glass.
