Jason Wilson is a very good writer, not some tacky lifestyle-mag scribbler. But he writes without the whiff of snobbery that often hangs around "serious" beer and spirits reviewers. He's a guy, in other words, that you'd want to have a beer (or whiskey, or akvavit...) with. This alcoholic tour of the world taught me a little about liquor, and has already convinced me to spend some serious cash on a few of the spirits he praises in the book, but Boozehound is mostly just a collection of good drinking stories, told well. And that's just fine with me.
