Travel with beer
on 29 June 2010
This is several books in one - a travelogue, a history of the East India Company, and a book about beer. The author manages to combine all of this in a witty, sometime laugh out load, and thought provoking read. Wonderfully written this is a book that's easy not to put down.
Pete Brown manages to make the history of IPA interesting, brings to life a number of historical characters, and animates his travels wonderfully. Full of humour, pathos, and life, this is a cracking read.
