This book has proved to be the solution to that problem for me. I picked it up after a beer festival where one of my local brewers was proudly showing off his entry and thoroughly recommended it is too.
The book is a veritable treasure trove of facts about these 300 beers which Protz has selected as his personal favourites. The beers are grouped into styles (of which there are many!) with each entry receiving a full page write-up. As well as a little background about the brewer and the qualities of the beer itself, there are helpful details on where to find the beer. Many of the beers are widely available in pubs or bottled in supermarkets whilst others from smaller brewers are regionally limited and a few downright scarce!
If you are happy with the standard chain-pub fizzy largers or the smoothflow branded bitters then this book is unlikley to hold your interest. However, if you are looking for more from your beer and have at least a passing interest in where it has come from, who made it and how, then this is a thoroughly recommended book! Cheers!!
However I do think there are better recent beer books - for instance Adrian Tierney-Jones' Big Book of Beer - produced also by CAMRA - is pretty damn excellent and very informative (I learned lots of new stuff from it). Also Pete Brown's Three Sheets to the Wind for one man's obsessive hunt for beer around the world.
So - this one's quite good, but there are better and more intersting books around on my favourite topic!
But then it goes further - it sets a challenge:
Try these beers, tick the boxes, expand your horizons.
Even if you're a lagerboy, seduced by the blandishments of huge advertising campaigns, there's still hope for you, and you'll find it in this book.
Quick delivery and great book. I had a little flick through and found it quite interesting and I don't like beer! : )
One a week should take me six years to complete, looking forward to

If this was marketed as a guide to British ales, I would be willing to give it 4 stars. However, it is not marketed that way, and totally fails as a quality list of 300 beers to... Read morePublished 14 months ago by captaincoffee
