I've read a few of his other books - both for CAMRA and other publishers - and also his reviews in the Telegraph. I always enjoy his eloquent, often lyrical, descriptions of both beer and the places in which it is served. He makes me thirsty, not to put too fine a point on it. In this book, he not only makes me thirsty for good beer, he makes me want to get up and travel round Britain to visit the pubs he so lovingly describes. They're a wide mix - from spit 'n' sawdust boozers to sophisticated gastros. All have character and charm; all serve great beer; all have made the grade one way or another to meet Tierney-Jones' exacting tastebuds and stringent eye.
I bought this book for myself as a bit of - let's be honest - pub porn. A book to flick through and salivate. It is now dog-eared as I've bookmarked so many places. I've also bought a whole bunch of copies for similar beer lovers as Christmas presents. It's a cracker.
Sort of a half-way house between an A-Z guide and a good read. Got my copy free as it features one of my photos but would have bought a copy anyway, can't say fairer than that.
