9780993291111: Beer, in So Many Words: The Best Writing on the Greatest Drink

These days beer could not be more popular. New craft breweries open by the week; most pubs routinely serve several draught real ales; supermarkets stock an astonishing range of the best beers from all over the world, and BrewDog raises millions by crowdfunding. Even Majestic Wines now sells beer.But until now, though people have always written evocatively and passionately about this delicious beverage, no-one has collected all the best beer writing into one volume - even though the same job has often been done for wine.Now the award-winning beer writer Adrian Tierney-Jones has put that right, with this endlessly entertaining anthology, packaged as a beautiful small-format hardback perfect for the gift market. In it you'll find great writing celebrating good ale from A.E. Housman and Ernest Hemingway to Inspector Morse, Ian Rankin and Ice Cold in Alex, as well as the best beer writers of today like Peter Brown and Evan Rail, and the funniest, most delicious celebrations of beer in fiction and poetry.

About the Author:

Adrian Tierney-Jones writes about beer for the Daily Telegraph, Sunday Times, the Daily Mail and All About Beer. His books include World Bottled Beers, Britain's Beer Revolution (with Roger Protz) and The Big Book of Beer. He is also the editor of the bestselling 1001 Beers To Try Before You Die.

Review:

'Perfect gift idea' - Daily Telegraph. 'Any book that contains Pete Brown, Patrick Hamilton and George Orwell is always going to be worth dipping into' - Henry Jeffries, Guardian Drink Books of the Year. 'Great. This really is a good place to start if you want to buy just one beer writing anthology' - Boak and Bailey. 'Some of my favourite writers, both beer and non-beer, and an ideal way to enjoy bite-sized pieces of beer-related prose while settled with a nice pint of bitter in your favourite pub' - Matthew Curtis, Total Ales.
