The world of beer is vast: diverse in its offerings and dazzling in its complexity. Today, craft brewing has been elevated from a hobbyist’s pursuit to a global art form. In this beautifully illustrated book, shot through with authoritative maps and glorious photography, National Geographic has compiled the most comprehensive collection of information on beers and the countries they’re brewed in with ATLAS OF BEER: A Globe-Trotting Journey Through the World of Beer.
Authors, geography professors and self-proclaimed “beer doctors,” Nancy Hoalst-Pullen, Ph.D., and Mark W. Patterson, Ph.D., traveled more than 160,000 miles across 28 countries to reveal the most unique, historic and delicious brews across the globe. And Garrett Oliver, brewmaster of the celebrated Brooklyn Brewery, recommends great beers from 40 regions around the world, as well as tasting notes, food pairings and presentation tips. Their body of research, complemented by 100 maps, 300 color photographs and quirky trivia, makes ATLAS OF BEER an essential reference – and perfect gift -- for craft aficionados and novices alike.
