DRINKUPS LIBRARY: 30-SECOND BEER

Delve into the world of beer in this book by Sophie Atherton, the first woman in the UK to be accredited as a beer sommelier. An illustrated and inventive guide to our favourite hoppy beverage, from the history to the basics of brewing and a trip around the world's beers.

Easily laid out into pages that can be summarised in a mere 30 seconds, with no more than 300 words and one quirky picture... think old fashioned photos cut out and re-assembled with giant pints of beer, this book is great for anyone looking to learn a little bit more about the frothy good stuff in small, fun, chunks. This is the kind of book you could pick up and read a page a day.

Each section starts with a glossary, so you can swat up on all those technical terms and read on with confidence. You'll start with a run through a brief history of the refreshing liquid, covering areas like 'women & beer', 'origins of modern ales' and 'beer & the industrial revolution', before diving into the brewing process. Unlike other books on brewing you'll find this an easily manageable read, with as little of the technical jargon as possible. And after becoming well-versed in malt, water and yeast, you'll move on to beer styles, from stouts to pale ales, sour beers and more.

Next, a look at beer cultures across the world... from beersy Brits to other countries in Europe and as far as Australia, onto a rounded look at the beer industry and aspects that have evolved since it's creation. 30 Second Beer ends with a look at beer appreciation of one of the world's most popular alcoholic beverages.
