With an explosion in the popularity of craft beers across the globe, there’s now excellent new brews being produced everywhere from Amsterdam to Auckland and San Francisco to Seoul. But which brews should beer lovers look out for?

 Gathering together over 350 of the most innovative and interesting beers you need to try, and divided into 50 different categories, Craft Beer World will show you the best of the best that each style has to offer. Every category comes with an explanation of the key characteristics of the style – whether it’s an American IPA bursting with citrusy C-hops or an Imperial Stout with its dark roasted malts – along with an example of a classic brew and a selection of exciting new versions that are certain to become instant favourites.

 More than just a list of delicious drinks, Mark gives a personal side to the beers by telling their story and looking at who makes them, where they are brewed and why, plus his own experience of drinking them.

 Also included throughout the book are informative looks at beer, covering everything from the catalyst that has caused the astonishing growth in craft beer, through to matching beer with food, Mark’s Beer Flavour Wheel, how to serve your beer, when beer goes bad and the histories of different styles, all written in Mark’s lively, fun style.

 Mark Dredge has won awards from the British Guild of Beer Writers in 2009, 2010 and 2011, his work is featured in leading publications across the globe and he’s an international beer judge. He is based in Kent, England.
