This 5th edition of the Real Ale Almanac details every real ale produced in the United Kingdom from national breweries to micros. In collating the considerable amount of information required for this book, award-winning beer writer and broadcaster Roger Protz has created a thumbnail picture of every UK brewery and the ale which it produces. All breweries are listed on a region-by-region basis giving full brewery name and address, telephone and fax, ownership status, reception centre details, and guided tour availability. And for each ale, OG and ABV figures are given along with ingredients and illuminating tasting notes. This handy pocket guide is not only a quick reference for real ale enthusiasts but also an ideal travelling companion for visitors to the UK.
