Modern British Beer

Modern British Beer aims to highlight the cultural development of beer in the United Kingdom since the turn of the century, while also attempting to define what “modern” means in today’s beer culture. The first-person narrative will be told through the stories of approximately 80 different beers and the brewers who make them, focussing on how their influence has directly affected our choice at the bar. It aims to make a case that although British beer culture has changed drastically over the past few decades, it remains as culturally vital as ever, and that being Modern in the 21st century means a great deal more than simply making delicious beer.

The Family Brewers of Britain -Slip case edition.

This special  edition of The Family Brewers of Britain is presented in a slip case. Britain’s family brewers are stalwarts of beer making. Some date back as far as the 17th and 18th centuries and have survived the turbulence of world wars, bomb damage, recessions, floods, and the hostility of politicians and the temperance movement. This book, by leading beer writer Roger Protz, traces the fascinating and sometimes fractious histories of the families still running these breweries. Many of the brewers remain in buildings of great architectural importance with gleaming coppers and wooden fermenting vessels, and a few still deliver beer by horse-drawn drays and employ coopers to fashion casks made of oak. But our family brewers are not living in the past. They have faced the challenges of the modern beer-drinking world and still produce beers that meet the demands of today’s consumers. Fully illustrated in colour throughout, with both modern and archive images of the breweries, their pub estates, beers and people.

The Microbrewers Handbook

The Microbrewers Handbook Paperback – 17 Jul 2017

“Indispensible if you are tempted to bolt together mash tun, copper and fermenters” – Roger Protz
The microbrewing scene has changed beyond recognition since this book was first published nearly 10 years ago. The number of small independent breweries throughout the UK is now over 2000, with more opening every month. This handbook guides you through the practicalities of starting your own microbrewery; from how to brew, through to finding a place of your own.
This edition has been updated by Tim Hampson who is an award-winning journalist and is currently editor of CAMRA’s What’s Brewing newspaper.

Sheffield’s Real Heritage Pubs (4th Ed)

Sheffield’s pub heritage seems to have suffered more than most from the modernising carnage of the post-1960s era. Large numbers of its pubs fell into the hands of Bass and Whitbread while John Smith’s strengthened their hold before themselves being taken over by Courage. Swathes of refurbishment were inflicted on a wide scale and even the local companies that survived a little longer, like S.H.Wards, succumbed with no less vigour to the same fashions. The last thirty years has seen some reversing of this trend, as under the influence of the 1989 beer orders, most pubs are now not directly owned by the local brewery. The influence of Wetherspoon is also important. A  number of Victorian buildings – banks, cinemas and offices – have also been converted into pubs: the architecture is saved and positive use is made of the building. In addition, a more recent trend has seen some old industrial buildings becoming pubs.
