Great Beers: 700 of the Best from Around the World Reviews
There are a lot of beer list books out there, and this is one of them. Not a bad place to begin looking at the wide variety of beer exists out there in the world, though really, this is a list of 350 breweries, each with a couple of beers highlighted. Each entry profiles a brewery, in alphabetical order, along with a photo of one of its flagship bottles and some description of couple of them. None of the descriptions, of the beers or the breweries, are very in depth, though it does give a good highlights of some of the global beers to look out for while traveling. Looks like I've tasted some from about twenty of them. In addition to the beer lists, a few travel itineraries are also provided for touring Oregon, England, Brussels, Prague, and Germany as well. Of course, it is these areas that the breweries are concentrated in, with many nations, if represented at all, are shown by a single entry. One Minnesota entry, August Schell, made it in. The index is only slightly useful, though, making referring to the book difficult; only a list of the included 700 beers regardless of brewery, and no index dividing them by locations, making checking to see if there are any included in your area or where you are visiting rather inconvenient. Really just a basic list of breweries in a rather compact book, Great Beers is a fun, if bare bones, coffee table book.
I should have kept track of the number of beers I had already drunk from the list and how many I wanted to try in the future. My side reading for a few months now, a good book to page through now and then.
