Greg Duncan Powell - beer obsessive, champion imbiber, rollicking writer - has gone the hard yards with this one, bringing you 150 beers from across Australia (and those washed up on our shores) sniffed, sampled and scored - from boutique lovelies to mass-market brews. An entertaining guide to the different species of amber liquid, Beer features a detailed explanation of how beer is made and a short history of brewing, followed by a survey of as many beers as the author could lay his hands on. It also taps into the growing interest in boutique beers and breweries, while including the ever-increasing array of mass-market beers. Each beer profile is accompanied by photography and classified according to the type and style of beer. You'll never look at beer with less than appreciation again!
