Many of my friends and colleagues spend hours discussing beer and I'm not even a fan of carbonated beverages most of the time. Other than sparkling wines here and there, I won't even touch lemonade or cola, etc. Ad sparkling water is just bland fizz. But with so many of my colleagues and friends having purchased this book, if there was ever a chance for me to start enjoying beer (especially beyond those of your typical bars and pubs), this book seems to have gotten me quite interested. I think it helps that the book is organised in a logical manner and you can search for keywords with the kindle. I tend to like sweeter drinks that the sour or bitter variety. Thanks!
