Continuing BD&L's successful bartenders series, the Beer Lover's Companion offers beer buffs and novices a clear and comprehensive illustrated guide to 400 of the best brews from around the world.

Two-page spreads highlight prominent beers from each region. More than 100 photographs show the bottles, labels and brewery facilities, and concise descriptions tell the origins, legends, brewing process and give a short assessment of each beer's flavor.

The book explains the differences among lagers, pilsners, stouts, bitters, wheat beers and porters--and examines the benefits and disadvantages of commercial breweries and micro-breweries, as well as tips on brewing beer at home. Notes on home brewing and brewing ingredients enhance drinking experience and beer knowledge. Tasting suggestions tell readers how to properly sample beers, and recipes suggest foods to match the different styles.

This book is a tour guide through the brewmaster's world, covering every significant beer--from ales and wheat beer to ambers and porters made in the US and aboard.
