I've not read it, but this is newly published I've read one of the author's other books, on Belgian beers, and he's a good writer.

The book pappers mentions is well worth the money. Mix of useful brewing info and tons of random hops knowledge. The variety description section is handy reference. I really enjoy the limited info on how hops and yeast interact. There is so much about it that isn't understood.


Brew as I say, not as I brew.
