Across Europe and North America, breweries large and small continue to craft rich, flavorsome beers in the tradition of the great monastic brewers. Many are made by monks themselves, working from the seclusion of their cloisters deep in Bavaria and Belgium; other abbey-style beers are produced by modern micro-breweries seeking to preserve time-honored traditions. Now, Roger Protz offers detailed information on these breweries and the beers they so lovingly craft. Lavishly illustrated in color, the book offers an abundance of tasting notes and practical advice, including tips on choosing, tasting, and serving. Roger Protz, who's been called the "King of Beer Writers" by Time Out magazine, is the winner of many awards, including the Gold, Silver, and Bronze from the North American Guild of Beer Writers. Among his many books are Stout and Porter and The Good Beer Guide.
