A fantastic insight into the world of beer and brewing, a must for those that brew and those that appreciate beer.......now the bad part......WHO had the moronic idea for the narrator to speak quotes and anecdotes in the accent of the originator? It was a really bad call as the flow of excellent information is peppered with Dick Van Dyke, Pepe Le Pew, an obvious American attempt at Irish, an obvious American attempt at Scottish, and so on.......it is embarrassingly grinding to say the least and spoils what is an excellent and informative resource to those interested in the world of beer. Maybe it won't bother you, but it drove me insane.

I listened to it twice on a flight to England and twice on the flight back to the US and laughed out loud every time. Matt Berry is a genius.
