Everything discerning drinkers need to know about bottled beers is collected in this pocket-sized guide: tasting notes, ingredients, brewery details, and a glossary to help the reader understand more about them. This bottled beer bible, acclaimed by brewers, bottle collectors, and everyday drinkers, covers all the bottle-conditioned real ales currently brewed in the UK, with a special section at the front highlighting the best 500. Features on how real ale is brewed and bottled, how beer matures in a bottle, and CAMRA’s real ale in a bottle scheme, are provided along with full listings of all bottle-conditioned beers brewed in the UK, organized by brewery. Useful appendices list the very best shops and online retailers from which to source bottle-conditioned real ales. The guide also highlights non-UK bottled real ales, the best bottled examples of traditional beers from abroad, and notes on foreign beer styles.
