And still another beer book suggestion

One more last beer gift suggestion, at least until I remember something else.

You can download Beer Lover’s Britain for £5.99. Jeff Evans includes all the vital information you’d expect but also address the questions you really want answers to.

Should there be a head on my pint? Is it in the right glass? Is it meant to taste like that? How much does a pint cost? How do I pay the bill? Can I join in the games? Am I allowed to drive after drinking? What can we eat? Can we bring the children in? Is smoking allowed? Can I expect table service? What time does the pub close? Can we stay at a pub? How do we get there?

I also discovered you can download his Book of Beer Knowledge, one of ten really good beer books I already recommended.

As long as I’m suggesting guide books (avoided in making the list above because of their specialized nature) I should mention Good Beer Guide Prague & the Czech Republic. There’s a chance we’ll make it back to the south of Germany and the Czech Republic sooner than later, so already committing this book and Trips! (South) to memory.

  • Congratulations to Gary Melenhorst and John Stephenson from Ontario’s Creemore Springs Brewery for winning the copy of the upcoming Brewing with Wheat I donated to Alan’s Good Beer Blog Yuletide Photo Contest. Clever that they won a book about wheat beer with a picture of a wheat beer truck. The book will be available at the end of February.
  • Stephen Beaumont has crowned a Beer Glass of the Year. No further comment.

      Admit it, Stan, you’re just jealous that you didn’t think of it first.

      I’m thinking about a Best Blog Post of the Year award.

      I am thinking of the best catty snippy beer blogging comment thread of 2009 which I think is a separate category from the harikari brain melt freakout comment thread of 2009
