*This structured guide will lead you around Belgium's most beautiful breweries and beer trails, with magnificent photography and informed advice*From the author of the much acclaimed Belgian Beer Book ISBN 9789401435529*Contains plenty of tips for tourists, and accompanies an app to help you organize your trip This book will guide you around Belgium's breweries, large and small. Wherever you travel on Belgian roads, you will come across brewers. Often invisible - lurking behind abbey walls, or tucked away in castles, barns, stables, caf�s, garages, kitchens or sheds - brewers are making beer in kettles, basins, tanks, and whatever else they have to hand! In large breweries you will find the brewers in the control room, the 'cockpit' of the enterprise. Entire dynasties are built around the industry; they are proud of their brewing traditions, which go back as many as fifteen generations. Meanwhile, at the other end of the spectrum, starters are cobbling together their own equipment or buying basic brewing kits. They are often acquainted with an experienced colleague, who is only too happy to lend a helping hand and share wisdom and experience. It is up to you whether or not you approve of their beers. Are you voting for weak, strong, pale, fruity, zesty, spicy, mild, sour, bitter or sweet? For accessible or layered, for a warming beer or a thirst-quencher, a degustation beer or a quaffable one? Tasting is the message. This book taps the keg, encouraging you to weigh up all the options and make your choice.

A thirst-quenching guide to B.C.’s craft brewers and their beers from the province’s favourite beer writer. Canada's microbrewing movement began in British Columbia with the founding of Horseshoe Bay Brewing in 1982. Three decades later, B.C. is home to more than fifty breweries, including a dozen brewpubs. Beer tourists are coming in droves, and private liquor stores are selling exclusive bottles of beer at prices previously reserved only for fine wine. With profiles of each of B.C.'s craft breweries, as well as maps, tasting tours and an insider's look at the people behind the kegs and casks, Craft Beer Revolution is the definitive guide to British Columbia's booming craft beer scene, from the movement's early founders still thriving today-Spinnakers, Granville Island and Vancouver Island-to the current industry leaders-Central City, Howe Sound and Driftwood-as well as the most remote-Tofino Brewing, Townsite in Powell River, and Plan B in Smithers. Each brewery has a tale to tell, and Joe Wiebe, the Thirsty Writer, has heard them all. B.C.'s leading beer writer, he has spent the last decade travelling throughout the province, sampling craft beer wherever he can find it. His irreverent guide will be an indispensable companion for beer nerd and novice alike.
