This is an account of the progress made in the quest for the appreciation of beer, due in no small part to the publication of Michael Jackson's "World Guide to Beer". This new text by Jackson is considered to be the "Bible" for beer connoisseurs, while Jackson is regarded as one of the world's leading authorities on beer - the new "designer" drink. The author's "World Guide to Whisky" won the 1987 Glenfiddich Award. He has written many articles and given lectures on beer and related topics all over the world.

Publishers Weekly, 1988-12-16 Jackson ( Simon & Schuster Pocket Guide to Beer ) argues convincingly that it's time the great beers of the world found their rightful place alongside fine wines. To this end, he offers a beer drinker's grand tour, focussing on Northern and Central European countries and the British Isles, but including the U.S., Canada, Australia, Asia and Africa. The author describes each nation's brews, their origins and the brewing process; provides instructions for proper serving and imbibing; and surveys the history of famous and little-known breweries and watering holes (addresses included). He urges us to seek out exemplary regional brewers and the new ``microbreweries''which produce specialty beersspringing up across Europe and North America. Travelers are bound to savor his suggestions on beer-tasting jaunts (e.g., stopping off along Belgium's Bruegel route to enjoy the area's refreshing wine-like Gueuze brews). Amply illustrated with maps, black-and-white and color photographs, fine art and reproductions of antique beer advertisements, coasters and labels, this exceptional guide is as rewarding to scan as to study.
