`From Burton to Bombay, Pete Brown tells us a history of the most glorious and cruel period of Britain's history... all through beer! This book is delightfully tongue in cheek but deeply informative. It doesn't matter if you're a fan of beer, travel or history, you'll end up feeling all the more informed of and entertained by all three subjects. Engaging, side-splittingly funny at times - and all the more rewarding for it.'
'This informative romp refreshes a part of the Raj other travel books can't reach.' --Metro
'An engaging, genial and often touching tale.' --Lonely Planet.com
'Like an evening in some louche boozer packed with crackpot regulars...Brown keeps his zest and colour to the end.' --The Independent
'A lot of fun, Brown's engaging style carrying the narrative along on a wave of beery bonhomie. It's informative, too, with discursions on Britain's imperial history and the art of brewing adding some ballast.' --The Independent on Sunday
'Packed with humour and anecdote and, yes, the odd jar of golden nectar.' --Choice
'Covers everything from the definitive history of Indian Pale Ale to the chaotic recreation of its 30,000 mile sea journey.'
