This book is not just about beer in the Great Lakes area, it’s about how beer touches your life when you get to know it. It’s about how beer is made, how people grow to love it, how beer fits into the world, how beers differ, how the beer culture in North America has suffered this century but is triumphantly rising from its ashes. I can pick up this book, turn to any page, and thoroughly enjoy myself. Forget your interminable lists of ‘beer ratings’ that cover every bottle of crap that ever made it off a bottling line; MacKinnon evaluates beers in a depth that is fascinating and arresting. Sublime stuff. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply Leave a comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
