If you're looking for another stodgy, holier-than-thou "connoisseur's" book, you've come to the wrong place. The Big Book o' Beer celebrates the wide world of beer in all its shameless glory -- from the highbrow to the Lowenbrau, from trendy Belgian microbrews to the famous "old man bars" of Las Vegas. It's packed with amazing photographs and fascinating beer-related information about history, geography, science, arts, crafts, and more. Want to tour the ten biggest breweries on the planet? Interested in making dazzling arts and crafts from old beer cans? Need a recipe for beer-flavored ice cream? Want to know the science behind beer bellies, beer goggles, and beer foam? The Big Book o' Beer has it all-plus drinking games, drinking songs, vintage cans, classic advertisements, an "atlas of beer," and too many other features to list here. It's an inspiring tribute that every cervezaphile (a.k.a. beer lover) will cherish!
