Raise a pint to the WORLD’S BEST BEERS! This extensive exploration of the 1,000 tastiest brews on earth is not your average guidebook—it’s a complete look into the history, production, and flavor of every beer worth drinking. “Brewery Profiles” take you country-by-country to the finest breweries in places like Argentina, Japan, Germany, Belgium, Britain, and New Zealand, and provide fun facts, stats, and anecdotes. There’s even an explanation of which beers go with which foods. Next time you eat shellfish, try it with a Pilsner. Having a hearty stout? It pairs perfectly with some vanilla ice cream. So drink up!
