A comprehensive and entertaining exploration of beer culture worldwide, this funny and informative guide does just what it says on the tin.

The book equips readers with essential skills, ensuring they can confidently navigate a universal challenge for travellers: how to order a beer without making a fool of yourself.
Ideal for both beer enthusiasts and travellers alike, it is the quintessential, value for money present for anyone seeking to explore the world of beer and travel.
Fraser Metcalf, an award-winning copywriter and the author of ‘How to Order a Beer in any Country in the World,’ firmly believes that it’s people and places that make beers memorable, not just the taste.
“The beers you really remember,” he says, “are the ones you drink in special places and on special occasions. I’ll remember a beer in a beach bar watching the sun going down over the ocean long after I’ll remember what it tasted like.”
The idea for the book came after Metcalf shared a few beers with friends who had just been away travelling. “We realised that all those travel guides out there failed to mention the most important thing for us – what beer to order and how to ask for it.” That seed of an idea took shape over the next few years, and the result is ‘How to Order a Beer in any Country in the World.’
‘How to Order a Beer in any Country in the World’ is already proving a hit with readers – and for people looking for a great present for beer lovers and travellers alike.
‘How to Order a Beer in any Country in the World’ has been painstakingly researched to take you on an amusing and informative tour of 197 countries from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe. The book is packed full of exotic destinations from the Chocolate Hills of Bohol to the shifting sands of the Sahara and features 161 beers which have become national treasures.
Each country in the world gets its own page – even those where you can’t get a beer. The book has been beautifully designed and illustrated, with bespoke images of every beer gracing each country’s entry. It’s a handy size to pop in your suitcase or backpack when travelling but will look equally good on a coffee table. It’s even got a checklist at the back, so the keen beer drinker can keep track of all the beers from around the world that they have sampled.
