Possibly the single most important guidebook that I rely on. From Canada to New Zealand to Thailand to Hungary it helps me get the most important decision of the day right. What am I going to have to drink?
If you're going to this part of the world and love beer then pack this book. Ben McFarland and Tom Sandham have managed to create a very amusing guidebook with all the relevant info you might need - travel, history and so on. They clearly love what they do and have an in-depth knowledge and appreciation of the best of the West Coast craft brewers and their beers.
