This finely illustrated, pocket-sized guide provides up-to-date recommendations of the 100 best breweries in North America and Canada. The book is divided into nine regional sections, each of which features dedicated full-length profiles of the region's key breweries, with a listing of their recommended beers, plus, of course, photographs of the labels and often of the brewery or local bars. Each region concludes with an 'Also Worth Trying' feature that highlights other producers whose brews are well worth sampling. The book also includes an illustrated 'A - Z of Brewing' section that provides all the necessary technical information for the most inquiring of readers.
