We've selected some of the finest tap rooms, bars and breweries that thirsty travellers can visit in 30 countries around the world. Discover how to find them, which beers to sample, and learn about local places of interest with our recommended itineraries. Each country is introduced by a beer expert and includes regional beverages that shouldn't be missed. There's a world of great beer to taste - go and discover it! So why go beer touring, especially when it's easy and cheap to find interesting craft beers in your local shop? Firstly, craft beer doesn't travel too well and is affected by changes in temperature and long distances. And secondly, due to the explosion in small-scale breweries, many great beers aren't distributed outside their city or region. Beer often tastes better the closer it is to home, especially if that's straight from a tap in the actual brewery. The craft beer revolution has seen waves of breweries open up to the public, not just in the United States, the UK and Australia, where the trend is well established, but all over the world.

The history of Guinness, one of the world's most famous brands, reveals the noble heights and generosity of a great family and an innovative business. From New York Times bestselling author Stephan Mansfield, explore the history, influence, and social impact of Guinness beer in the Search for God and Guinness. This is a book that will speak to you on practical, novel, and spiritual level, and it will spark the flames of your entrepreneurial dreams. "Frothy, delicious, intoxicating and nutritious! No, I'm not talking about Guinness Stout-I'm talking about Stephen Mansfield's fabulous new book...The amazing and true story of how the Guinness family used its wealth and influence to touch millions is an absolute inspiration." - Eric Metaxas, New York Times best-selling author "It's a rare brew that takes faith, philanthropy and the frothy head of freshly-poured Guinness and combines them into such an inspiriting narrative. Cheers to brewmaster Stephen Mansfield! And cheers to you, the reader! You're in for a treat." - R. Emmett Tyrrell Jr., Founder and editor-in-chief of The American Spectator It began in Ireland in the mid 1700s. The water in Ireland, indeed throughout Europe, was famously undrinkable, and the gin and whiskey that took its place devastated civil society. It was a disease ridden, starvation-plagued, alcoholic age, and Christians like Arthur Guinness-as well as monks and even evangelical churches-brewed beer that provided a healthier alternative to the poisonous waters and liquors of the times. This is where the Guinness tale began. Now, 250 years and over 150 countries later, Guinness is a global brand, one of the most consumed beverages in the world. The tale that unfolds during those two and a half centuries has power to thrill audiences today: the generational drama, business adventure, industrial and social reforms, deep-felt faith, and the noble beer itself. For readers who love history, cultural studies, religious debate, and stories of business success. What readers will learn with this book... The earthy, human, and holy importance of honing a craft over time Example of a family seeking to do good in the world as an offering to God How unexpected and small things impact the history of humanity Inspirational fuel for entrepreneurial dreams

Real ale and other craft beers have become increasingly popular over the past few years, and as a result more people have been compelled to try making their own homebrew.

With a range of equipment and guidance now readily available, home-brewing is more accessible than ever. However, while the actual concept behind making beer is simple – add water to barley to create and extract sugar, add hops while boiling, cool, then feed to yeast – the execution can at times seem complex and confusing. The key to bridging the gap between brewing in theory and practice is being able to spot the signs of trouble and know how to respond.

Whether the reader is a first-timer trying out a new hobby or an old hand looking to produce a finely crafted artisan ale, The Home-brewer’s Problem Solver provides the information needed to nip problems in the bud and to avoid them in the fi rst place. It contains 100 common home-brew snags and setbacks, spelling out the underlying causes and offering practical solutions. Each key stage of the brewing process is tackled with accompanying photographs, practical tips and useful insights.

Contents: The basics, Ingredients, Mashing/steeping, Boiling, Fermentation, Packaging, Equipment, Finished beer.
