Disappointing. I'm sure Papazian is both knowledgable about, and skilled at, making beer, but he is not a writer. This was not engaging in the least.

I found the recipes useful/interesting. The rest of the book is a loop of "I went to this place, met some nice people, had a good time, drank this and that beer with these characteristics."

Like many beginning homebrewers, Papazian's "The Complete Joy of Homebrewing" helped introduce me to making my own beer. So when I saw his latest book at my local bookstore, I felt it deserved a look. In this volume, he brings his readers on a tour of the microbreweries and early beer festivals that helped create the commercial craft-brewing landscape that a youngster like me (27) can take for granted at times.

Short quips and tales of visiting different breweries and beer gardens all over the world. Charlie writes about his many adventures over his career as a home brew guru. The best part of the book is the second half which has recipes for the beers he samples. It's really nice to see that each recipe in the book has both an all grain and extract version.

OK for a novice brewer thinking about what it would be like to travel the world and meet successful homebrewers that moved upwards a level or two. The blending of two or more beers at the tap was right up my alley. My personal favorite in a local bar lacking anything quality on tap is a Luna Gorda-- equal portions of Blue Moon and Fat Tire.

Another great book about beer, homebrewing and microbrewing. I recommend Charlie P's books for all who enjoy reading nonfiction, they are full of history and anthropology. Give this one a look if you need some new reading material.

A wonderful voyage through the world's various beer styles and the start of the American craft beer movement, through the eyes of a man who is truly passionate about what he does. Plus, a large collection of beer recipes at the back, of which I'll have to choose a few to try to brew myself.

I think this book really isn't too much about the beer. Is it one I'd recommend buying? Maybe if you really like beer or reading about traveling and eating. I'd say though if you like reading about travel and beer it's not a bad read.
