Lager Library: The Beer Guide
The Beer Guide, edited by Josh Oakes, has more than 2,700 beer descriptions and ratings culled from RateBeer.com.
Savory Press has published the soft cover book for $9.95. It allows you to take along the thoughts of 30,000 RateBeer.com contributors in an easy to carry package. The book also includes a beer and food pairing guide by Stan Hieronymus.
The neat thing about the book is that you can quickly get ratings for everything from Schlitz malt Liquor (one star: "It's like watching a mime get run over") to Westvleteren Abt 12 (five stars: "Wonderfully madeirized malt with raisins, prunes and dates in aroma and nice spices wafting through.").
