Love beer? Love travel? Love traveling to find great beer? This book has you covered.
Edited by Jeppe Jarnit-Bjergsø, former beer director of Noma and renowned brewer behind Evil Twin Brewing, Where to Drink Beer (Phaidon Press) collates a world of knowledge—literally—to find the best places to quaff a brew. As Jarnit-Bjergsø writes in the intro, “If you know where to find it, good beer can be found in just about every locality near and far. Across the globe, in big cities and small towns…it’s no longer a rarity to find a wide range of serious craft beers in both bars and restaurants.”
To prove the point, he surveys close to 500 international brewing industry professionals, asking them to recommend favorites in six categories: beer and food; beer garden; local favorite; unexpected; wish I’d opened; and worth the travel. The results are organized first by global region and country, sometimes drilling down to a specific city (London or Los Angeles, for example), with maps pointing the way and reviewers weighing in with more custom content.
This isn’t your typical travel guide, stopping only at well-known venues and popular haunts. Instead, you’ll discover local secrets, hidden gems, and seriously surprising establishments. Happy travels!
