Mutli-million dollar branded or small-scale craft creation? Lager or ale? Boldly quaffed or genteelly sipped? However you enjoy your beer, you may not know as much about it as you think. 30-Second Beer is here to enlighten you, with a trip around the world's beers, a look at brewing history, a dissection of the different sorts of brew and their unique characteristics, and an up-to-date overview of the current craft scene and the various (and ever-changing) fashions in beer drinking.

50 topics, divided under seven chapter headings, offering short, witty summaries, whether covering the basics or trade secrets. You'll pick up the knowledge without noticing-and by the time you reach the last page, you'll be able to hold your own with local beer experts anywhere in the world.
