Craft Beer World: A Guide to Over 350 of the Finest Beers Known to Man
By Mark Dredge
Dog’N’Bone publishing, April 2013, $24.95

To those who keep up with beer journalism, Mark Dredge is a familiar name. (He’s also been known to contribute to BeerAdvocate.) In his debut book, Dredge spotlights some of the world’s best beers, broken down by style—from all the standbys, to categories like “specialty ingredients” (calling out 5 Rabbit’s Huitzi and William Bros Noillag from Scotland); “historic re-creations” (like Professor Fritz Briem from Germany, although surprisingly leaving out Pretty Things); and “blockbusters,” like Westvleteran 12. Dredge’s award-winning writing makes the book not only a pleasure to read, but lends it the journalist’s touch of detailed descriptions. A compendium of some of the world’s most amazing beers, their backstories and tasting notes, this book will be relevant for years to come.
