The first thing to notice about this book is it’s unique beer bottle shape. But I guess that’s the point, as part of this idea is that it slips easily into Christmas stocking, since this book is targeted for the holidays. Inside, you’ll find fifty breezy, yet informative beer reviews from accomplished beer writer Adrian Tierney-Jones on some of the world’s finest beers. Tierney-Jones reviews American beers like Bear Republic’s Racer 5 IPA and Victory Brewing’s Prima Pils, while including beers from overseas like St. Bernardus Abt 12 and Fuller’s Vintage Ale. Most beer geeks will be familiar to many of these beers, although I discovered a few intriguing selections from overseas on its pages. Given that, this book will be best appreciated by those who’ve come to enjoy craft beer and are looking to broaden their beery horizons.
