Synopsis

When bestselling UK Homebrew author Andy Hamilton began work on his new book, Brewing Britain, he embarked on a quest to discover whether there could be a perfect pint in the UK. After two years of (arduous) study of hundreds if not thousands of beers from around the country - visiting brewers, testing beer kits and, of course, brewing his own - he found that in fact there were many perfect pints. Buy Brewing Britain and: discover lagers that are not loutish, beers that will win over wine lovers, the ideal temperature for serving ale, and the best glass to drink it from; experiment with forty recipes from ancient times to the modern day and really get to know your ingredients with an in-depth account of many of the hops and malts available; and hone your tasting skills at sessions in local pubs, breweries and beer festivals near you. Brewing Britain: the essential companion for our beer drinking nation in its search for that elusive perfect pint.

Andy Hamilton lives with his family on top of a hill that overlooks Bristol. He runs brewing workshops at his local home-brew shop and the occasional tasting session, too. He is also a member of the British Guild of Beer Writers and CAMRA. He grows ingredients for beer in his vertical hilltop garden and forages for ingredients for various alcoholic drinks in and around the parks and waste grounds of Bristol. Andy is often called upon to contribute to various TV and radio shows on subjects from survival and foraging to home-brewing and gardening. Highlights include telling Radio 2's Simon Mayo how to make the perfect elderflower champagne and nearly taking the Autumnwatch cast's teeth out with his toffee apples. He is the author of the award-winning and bestselling foraging/home-brewing book Booze for Free, which has made him the biggest-selling home-brew author in the UK for 2011-2012. He regularly blogs about home-brewing, beer, foraging and gardening on his website, www.theotherandyhamilton.com. When not tasting new and wonderful beers in pubs and at festivals around the country, Andy works as a trustee for Homestart Bristol, a charity that offers support for struggling families in Bristol and South Gloucestershire.
