This update of Jackson's landmark World Guide to Beer (Prentice-Hall, 1977) follows the format of the earlier book and includes many of the same photographs, but it also features a completely rewritten text with revised maps and charts which cover the changes in the international beer scene over the past decade. In addition to discussing the beer renaissance of the 1980s and the differences between beer styles and brewing techniques, Jackson leads the reader on a worldwide tour of the great brewing nations--critically describing the beer culture of Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Caribbean, and Australia, with North America given expanded coverage in this book. The greatest emphasis, however, is on the beers of Europe. Even libraries owning the earlier edition should consider purchase.
