Book Description

24 Oct 2011
Beer is the world's favourite drink, yet too often it's shrouded in mystery, myth and complex-sounding terminology. This no-nonsense guide cuts straight through all of this, with simple advice on how to seek out and enjoy the immense range of flavours on offer, in Melissa's trademark chatty style. The maxim that beer should always be fun runs right through this book. Melissa covers all the key essentials: Flavours - explore the tastes you most enjoy and find other similar beers; Practical details - choose, buy, serve and taste beer with confidence; Food and beer matching - find the beer to complement your food; Beer styles - explore the main styles from around the world (wild beers, wheat beers, lagers, golden and blonde ales, farmhouse ales, IPAs and pale ales, bitters, trappists and abbey beers, barley wines, Scotch ales and old ales, mild ales, porters and stouts, fruit, field, spice and all things nice, and the lunatic fringe); Recommendations - over 200 recommended beers to try with Melissa's original tasting notes. A true beginner's guide written in an unpretentious and easy-to-read style.

4.0 out of 5 stars Let me tell you about beer 9 Jan 2012
The book was bought as a gift and it has worked a treat, a present for a man who enjoys real ales and has an interest in how things work. Large text for anyone who finds reading a struggle or needs glasses, sharp photographs which add value to the text and a nice size so you don't lose it. Well worth the purchase!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Let Me Tell You About Beer 18 Nov 2011
By Jackie
Let Me Tell You About Beer is the ideal Christmas Gift for lovers of Real Ale. The colourful cover makes it stand out from the rest and the editorial production is both sharp and beautifully illustrated. The author obviously knows her beer. Yes, HER beer! It's written by a WOMAN, a rarity in the world of Real Ale experts, and not just any woman but a woman who really knows her stuff. Melissa Cole's book is informative and very well written full of interesting facts presented in an amusing, unstuffy, Un-nerdy narrative. A not to be missed factual guide to the nation's favourite beverage.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy It! 9 Feb 2013
Written by THE Educator of the Year Winner 2013 at The Inbibe Awards...and you will see why, when you delve into this wonderful work of reference and passion on all that is beer related. I've bought 2 copies so far and one was well received as a present to a fellow beer lover. Get a pint of your favourite in your hand and settle down to an informative read. Cheers!
