We came across this book at a homebrew store, and it looked like the greatest thing ever. It may have more to do with my high expectations, but it was pretty disappointing.

It's advertised as an adult book for kids and a kids book for adults. In reality, it was more of book that's somewhere in the middle and not really great for everyone. The story isn't horrible, but I didn't really enjoy reading it. I also wouldn't really be comfortable reading it to my daughter. Maybe there's some age in the middle that the book is perfect for, but I'm not sure.

I think Robbins started off with a great idea, but it just sort of fell apart. I'm sure that there's no easy way to write a book for children where beer is the central theme. On the positive side, it is a very quick read.
