I wrote a handful of the entries in this new beer book, 1001 Beers You Must Taste Before You Die. This thing is a monster encyclopedia of beer descriptions and beer porn (someone recently told me this term isn’t as intuitive as I thought it was – beer porn is pictures of beers that make the viewer drool with lust). My contributions include descriptions of Hakim Stout and Meta, both from Ethiopia, and iJuba sorghum beer from South Africa.
The book was compiled and edited by Adrian Tierney-Jones who, based on the editing he did on my reviews, is an excellent writer. His awards back up the claim. He is also the editor of the Brewer’s Herald, author of The Big Book of Beer, and blogger at maltworms.blogspot.com.
