Written by two of the world's leading beer experts, with the help of a team of international contributors, The Pocket Guide to Beer 2014 takes you from the Bock beers of Germany to the Trappist beers of Belgium, the complex bitters and stouts of Britain to the cutting-edge brews of North America.

Tasting notes, organised by country, provide succinct commentary on the chosen beers and cover the brewery and each beer's key characteristics.
