Worlds greatest beers
What makes a great beer? That’s the question we wanted to answer when we came up with this book. You might think that would be an easy question: after all, how many beer books don’t simply tell you the best beers in the world? Well this one does. But we decided that just telling you about the best beers wouldn’t do anyone any good; it certainly wouldn’t change your life or make you love beer more. We wanted to find out what made these beers so special, and what they had done for those who drank them. So we asked eight of the world’s most renowned beer writers and influencers to select their own list of great beers: not just the ones they thought should be in this book, but also the ones they loved themselves. To earn its place on their list, each had to be more than just a drink; it had to connect to something: a place, person, cherished memory.
