5.0 out of 5 stars A (Cornish?) mine of information 13 Mar 2003
By A Customer
I came across this book by chance while on holiday in Cornwall and bought a copy for my brother who's into real ale. He never got it (well I'm buying another for him!) as once I dipped in I just couldn't put it down.
Adrian obviously has enjoyed his research, visiting every brewery in Devon and Cornwall - and sampling their wares. He knows his stuff and makes the palate water with his precise and mouthwatering descriptions of the region's ales. If you've never thought beer could be as diverse and challenging as wine, then this book is a real eye-opener.
I'd say it would be essential reading for a host of different people - those who love real ale (wherever they live); those who live (lucky sods) in Devon or Cornwall and particularly for those who plan to visit the region. With this book in hand you could easily spend your entire holiday in and out of the recommended pubs - which are spot-on.
It's also ideal if you want to know more about beer and brewing in general. Adrian has explained all the technical stuff in easy-to-understand terms and also gives some really intriguing bits of history and beer gossip. Fabulous. Just wish he'd do the same for every county.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really neat book if you're interested in beer 31 Oct 2005
By Jane Alexander - Published on
I found this book on a trip to the UK and think it's a real gem. It's a comprehensive guide to all the breweries and beers of England's 'West Country' - places like Somerset, Devon and Cornwall where you can get some real fine real ales at nearly every pub (or so it seemed). The author really knows his beer and makes the mouth water and the taste buds tingle. My only gripe is that the pictures are all black and white but that's a small point. If you're interested in real ales and good beer, or are planning a trip to the UK in the near future, this book is a must.
