Andy Hamilton travels the length of Britain in a quest to uncover new and unusual beers and to find that elusive perfect pint.

When bestselling UK Homebrew author Andy Hamilton began work on his new book, Brewing Britain, he embarked on a quest to discover whether there could be a perfect pint in the UK. After two years of (arduous) study of hundreds if not thousands of beers from around the country - visiting brewers, testing beer kits and, of course, brewing his own - he found that in fact there were many perfect pints. Buy Brewing Britain and:
·Discover lagers that are not loutish, beers that will win over wine lovers, the ideal temperature for serving ale, and the best glass to drink it from
·Experiment with forty recipes from ancient times to the modern day and really get to know your ingredients with an in-depth account of many of the hops and malts available
·Hone your tasting skills at sessions in local pubs, breweries and beer festivals near you
