A great introduction to the immense world of beer, circa the late 1980s. I can't decided if I gained more knowledge from this coffeetable volume or more appreciation for what's in my glass. I'd be happy to re-read many portions of this TNWGB.

First read this when I was getting into beer from the library. I was glad very recently (August '09) to treat myself to a copy of this book from Powell's. I'm sure many of the beers and places have drastically changed in the 20 years since this book was published, but still the variety of beer and the obvious enjoyment Michael Jackson took in them is evident.
