Once again a fantastic source of information.
Just about every brewery in the UK that produces real ale in a bottle is here with details about the brewery and the beers in an easy to read format. The writing is informative without being anorak-y, a good size and a hardback cover means that this will remain a useful book.... until the next edition.
A real "must-have" for anyone interested in beer.

This book makes you feel like a kiddie in a sweetie shop - so many fantastic beers and the only questions is "Where can I buy them?"
Written by Jeff Evans - an expert on real ale in a bottle - this book has the authority lacking from some other tomes on the subject.
It's only a year since I bought the last edition and the amount of change in the marketplace is phenomenal which made it well worth buying this one.
If you are looking for a present for someone who likes beer this is just the thing. The writing is clear and authoritative and takes the reader gently through the 600+ real ales available in bottle in Britain today.
Buy this book - you won't be disappointed.

I wish I could get half the beers described in this new book from my local off-licence.
It's like reading a good cookbook - your mouth starts watering as you realise quite how many bottle conditioned beers there are available.
Another fantastic book from a really knowledgeable author.
Put that together with the fact it's from CAMRA and you know it's going to be good.

Having bought and currently owning 4 years worth of these guides, I know what to expect in the new edition, but I got much, much more.
It's a fatter book, having good information about new programs that CAMRA have for bottled beers, and as usual, information about storage, and good tasting notes for most of the beers.
But, it also now features a proper international real beers section, albeit most of them are Witbiers(wheat beers), but there are a good number of other types thrown in too.
All in all, it's really triumphed over any other issue I own!
A Must buy for anyone either starting out in exploring Real Ale, or for any long time real ale enthusiast likewise.
PROST!

This book runs through all the major "bottle fermented" beers, by type ,by brewery; and awards a number with a commentation.

Pictures of the lables appeared next to about 20% of entries, it would be better if this was 100%, but the size of the book ( and price )would go up.

Your main problem will be your inability to source all these beers that now look so appealing, as most are only available locally to the brewery.

Bought this, on request, for a bottled-beer enthusiast and serious officianado. He is not disappointed as it gives him a guide to beers worth considering going out of his way for. He may not always agree fully with the comments in the book but values its ability to 'guide', as the title suggests.

Have you ever seen those funny bottle conditioned beers on the shelves? Fancied trying them, but know nothing about them? Well then, this is the book for you. Jeff Evans lists all the bottle conditioned beers available and gives detailed instructions on storage and serving temperature.
The book also gives an explination of how beer is bottled and the different tastes you can expect to meet. For a long time, beer has been neglected, while wine books are common place. This handy, pocket sized, volume aims to address the balance. Buy it, put it in your pocket and shopping for beer will never be the same again.

A nicely written guide book this, with plenty of photos to tantalise the taste buds! (It's a shame you can't reach into the page and grab a bottle!) The book itself it a good size, not too big and fairly compact, and reviews are well written and balanced. I recommend this as a great asset for any budding beer collector!

A solid 4 stars.

This is for a real ale drinker who likes to know all about what he is drinking, where it came from, where to buy etc.
