Modern British Beer

by Matthew Curtis

“Matthew Curtis has written an inspirational book, one no beer lover should miss.” Roger Protz

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.

“A beauty and a triumph… An incredibly engaging read.” — Claire Bullen, Editor-in-Chief Good Beer Hunting

“If you’re looking for a primer on the best independently-produced British beers available today, you’re in luck.” — Will Hawkes

“UK brewing is at a crossroads and the definitions Matthew comes up with help illuminate the path forward.” – Jonny Garrett, The Craft Beer Channel

Beer is the world’s favourite alcohol and it has changed out of all recognition in the 21st century. The country-by-country sections will give more detail of the changes but the introduction will lead readers into the world beer revolution by describing the enormous power and stretch of global brewers – with AB InBev accounting for one-third of all beer made and consumed – with the counter culture of the world-wide craft movement. From the US to Australasia, charting the beer scene in every country, the key players, and the styles available.
