Beer is the world's favourite drink, yet too often it's shrouded in mystery, myth and complex-sounding terminology. This no-nonsense guide cuts straight through all of this, with simple advice on how to seek out and enjoy the immense range of flavours on offer, in Melissa's trademark chatty style. The maxim that beer should always be fun runs right through this book. Melissa covers all the key essentials: Flavours - explore the tastes you most enjoy and find other similar beers; Practical details - choose, buy, serve and taste beer with confidence; Food and beer matching - find the beer to complement your food; Beer styles - explore the main styles from around the world (wild beers, wheat beers, lagers, golden and blonde ales, farmhouse ales, IPAs and pale ales, bitters, trappists and abbey beers, barley wines, Scotch ales and old ales, mild ales, porters and stouts, fruit, field, spice and all things nice, and the lunatic fringe); Recommendations - over 200 recommended beers to try with Melissa's original tasting notes. A true beginner's guide written in an unpretentious and easy-to-read style.
