Keg Bottle Can is a guide to more than 100 Australian craft beers, grouped (mostly) by occasion: from sharing at a dinner party to taking to a barbecue, to challenging your palate, to enjoying art (beer with well-considered labels). Beginning with a brief history of beer and how it's made, each entry in Keg Bottle Can then gives key tasting information on the beer, as well as a backstory about the brewer and the beer itself, and food pairing and glassware suggestions. The beer world is a broad church - and there really is something for everyone. And while it's fine to drink a beer out of a bottle at a barbecue, if you pair it with food, there are nice glasses for it too. Keg Bottle Can offers the confidence and knowledge to do both, rather than feeling bound by boring hard and fast rules.
On just about every continent, from Boston's strong ale to Norwegian stout, there are people brewing great beer. From English ales to Czech lager, Belgian sour to American pale ale, German Berliner Weisse to Australian Adelaide sparkling ale, the number of brewed beers is big and increasing daily.

He discovers dark beers, light beers, sour beers, imperial stouts, beers flavoured with honey, herbs and spices, and beers that have been matured in wooden barrels that once stored some of the world's best whiskies. The world of beer is undergoing a revolution. This wide-ranging selection will give any beer fan a tour of the world through their favourite drink.
Poole is one of the largest natural harbours in the world and the port itself has a long trading history dating back to Roman times. It is still a working port, particularly on the southern side, where many half-constructed Sunseeker yachts can be seen. This side also includes a ferry terminal and container port. On the northern side a fishermen's dock nestles incongruously adjacent to a yachting marina, which houses many luxurious vessels, most of which would have been built across the water. The Quay and Old Town contain numerous cobbled streets and alleyways with historic buildings, some dating back to the fifteenth century. Many of the town's pubs are situated in these areas and their chequered maritime history, including pirates and smugglers, is reflected in these pubs. In Poole Pubs author Andrew Jackson takes the reader on a fascinating journey through Poole's watering holes. Many of the pubs have retained features and traditions of previous ages, and he reveals the variety of Poole's pubs today including the characters that have frequented or run the public houses over the years. Brimming with quirky tales and intriguing facts, this carefully crafted guide initiates readers into the history of Poole's pubs.
Make your own bitters at home to enhance your medicine cabinet, and your bar! Used since the Middle Ages, bitters are made by combining various plant botanicals and/or spices with 100-proof alcohol and letting them sit until the bitter and medicinal qualities have been extracted. Just a small amount of the resulting liquid can then be used to stimulate the digestive system and promote healthy digestion. This is why "apertifs" and "digestifs" are so popular--both then and now! DIY Bitters is a how-to guide that explores the history and health benefits of bitters, and shows you how to make your own bitters at home, to be used alone or in cocktails, tonics, and even main meals. Herbalists Jovial King and Guido Mase, owners of the bitters company Urban Moonshine, teach you how to make recipes for classic bitters like orange and angostura, or explore more innovative bitters like elderflower-echinacea-honey and chocolate love tonic. You can even find a guide for creating your own unique flavors from the plants and ingredients you have on hand. Whether enjoyed as an apertif, digestif, or as a remedy to settle an upset stomach, bitters are back!
Christian Heurich (1842-1945) was not only Washington D.C.'s most successful brewer, he was the world's oldest, with 90 years' experience. He walked across central Europe learning his craft, survived a shipboard cholera epidemic, recovered from malaria and worked as a roustabout on a Caribbean banana boat-all before age 30. Heurich lived most of his life in Washington, becoming its largest private landowner and opening the city's largest brewery. He won a "beer war" against his rivals and his beers won medals at World's Fairs. He was trapped in Europe while on vacation at the start of both World Wars, once sleeping through an air raid, and was accused of being a German spy plotting to assassinate Woodrow Wilson. A notably odd episode: when they began to tear down his old brewery to build the Kennedy Center, the wrecking ball bounced off the walls. Drawing on family papers and photos, the author chronicles Heurich's life and the evolving beer industry before and after Prohibition.
