New book from Guild member Natalya Watson

Published by Kyle Books, 19th March 2020, £15.99

Natalya Watson’s debut book, Beer: Taste the Evolution in 50 Styles, is a beautifully illustrated taster’s guide through the history of beer.

Beginning in the UK in the 1600s with smoky brown beer and ending with current areas of innovation, this fun and interactive guide moves through time and across the world to tell the stories behind some of today’s best-known beer styles, including German lagers, stouts, porters, pilsner, IPA, sour beers and more.

Each chapter focuses on one of beer’s key ingredients – malt, water,  hops and yeast – sharing how, as each ingredient modernized over time, new flavours and styles emerged. With each change, accredited Beer Sommelier Natalya offers a modern beer to try that will bring the section’s story to life and help you truly taste the evolution of beer through the years.

With five centuries’ worth of information, stories and fun facts to discover and 50 beers to taste, Beer: Taste the Evolution in 50 Styles breathes new life into the exploration of one of the world’s oldest and most enduring drinks.

“Natalya will make any reader want to learn more about beer.” — Michel Moortgat, CEO Duvel Moortgat
