The Pocket Beer Guide: The Essential Handbook to t&hellip by Tim Webb
Of course this book will be out of date as soon as you buy it. Of course some beers you may recognise haven't made it in.

Vango Orchy 400 Tent Smoke/Black (2009) Vango

Had the Orchy 400 a month now: it's well made as you expect Vango's to be; relatively easy to put up - it took me 20 minutes first time and an excellent DVD helps with this - but the thing that struck me is the head room. For anyone brought up in canvas tents, you will be familiar with that aversion to even brushing the top or sides... well, no issues here. There's room for a 6' bloke like me and enough horizontal space to put up a table and play poker. A good buy.
