In this beautifully illustrated collection, he has distilled decades of beer knowledge into an entertaining and indispensable guide to the brews that no beer lover should miss, from hoppy British real ale to German and Czech Republic lager, American micro-brewed golden ales to Belgium fruit beers.

Many of the entries are fully illustrated, and each beer entry comes with a box panel for adding your own tasting notes. Information on the country of origin, beer strength, brewery and and a detailed description of the beer and its history are also given. A beer index means you can tick the beers you’ve tried, while a directory of beer styles, a glossary and a detailed introduction make 300 Beers to Try Before you Die! The perfect gift for beer novices and aficionados alike.
