Craft Beer World Book Launch!


My book is released next week, which is both extraordinarily exciting and monumentally scary! It’s on national release and available in the UK and US plus a few other English-speaking countries. You can order online or get it in bookstores.

Craft Beer World is a look at the stories behind around 350 different beers. It’s about the more interesting side of world brewing, the more unusual or unexpected beers, which takes a look at some classic beers but then focuses on the way they’ve influenced others and how breweries have evolved beer styles. It’s also, I hope, a bit different to other coffee table beer books in that there are personal stories of when and where I drank some of the beers, adding some important context to the taste.

The official launch is on Thursday 2 May at Camden Town Brewery. It starts around 6.30pm and there’ll be copies available on the night plus lots of beer (including a keg of Tipopils!) on the bar and street food outside. Everyone is welcome, so come along for a beer and grab a copy of the book!

  10. I'm about half way through and am really enjoying the book. Quite different to the usual beer books and was a good help whilst recently holidaying and beer shopping in Florida.

  11. I got a chance to briefly skim this book while at the Windsor pub. I love that it focuses on craft beers and mainly breweries in and around Europe. I am from the U.S. and am on a mission to visit all the major brewing centers of Europe and drink as much delicious craft beer before I go broke. I want to make this book my travel guide! I will buy it either way,but is there a chance it is coming out on kindle? When you are carrying your home on your back, a hard cover book does not sound too appealing :)
