From the world leader in fascinating facts and amusing true stories comes a book about all things beer. For more than 25 years, Uncle John's Bathroom Reader has helped you learn amazing things you didn't know (and amazing things you didn't know you didn't know). Now, Uncle John's tackles one of the world's best loved and--fastest growing interests-- beer. Pull up a stool and chug a pint of Beer-Topia, a rich, deep-bodied keg of beer knowledge, beer trivia, beer history, and beer fun. In recent years, beer has evolved from the swill your uncle drank at the bowling alley to the explosively-popular "microbrew" culture. There's a lot to explore about the beer phenomenon, and Beer-Topia will plumb the depths. What's on tap:
- The histories and origins of all the different styles of beers
- Interesting (and weird) beer flavors
- The science of beer, and how it's made
- Crazy beer-related news stories
- Beer terminology
- Funny microbrew names
- And lots, lots more
