Good bad not so great reader

If you're using this audiobook to study for Cicerone or BJCP exams beware of pronunciation. The readers of this audiobook butcher some very key terminology.

Simplifying the complex world of beer & brewing

A must read for anyone interested in beer, history and/or culinary arts. I also found that following along with the 2nd edition book helpful, especial later chapters about style.

Pronounciation changes

Only thing I didn't like was that the narrator would pronounce the same world 3-4 different ways sometimes. I'm familiar with most of the words but I could see it being really confusing for someone who wasn't. Otherwise it was a fantastic read and well narrated.

audio book. ftw

narrator didn't seem bored like some can with nonfiction. have the book can't find time to sit down. listened to this over 2 days while at work. l am trying to build a better vocabulary for what I'm tasting. food pairings and beer cocktails seem really well thought out. If you like beer at all. this is a good listen. will revisit. in the future for sure

Probably the best book on beer

Excellent for both beginner and advanced beer lovers. Great for BJCP and early Cicerone exams. Will listen again

Too much info for an audio book

As a self confessed beer geek I can confirm that this is one of the best beer reference books you can buy.
It works brilliantly as a book that you can duck in and out off and reference beer styles and types at your leisure.
Unfortunately as an audio book it's 'information overload'.
At a colossal 16 hours long it is a challenging listen of facts and figures which goes on and on. Great content no doubt but definitely more suited to a written book.

<br />Great intro about world of beers and how it's mad

A bit too boring when he gets too much into describing each style. Unless you're into that type of beer it won't be interesting to you
