With over 30 new breweries added – even more comprehensive, informative and thirst inducing than the last edition!
In this newly-updated comprehensive guide to Yorkshire brewing, renowned beer writer Simon Jenkins trawls the length and breadth of Britain’s biggest (and best) county seeking out the brewers old and new, large and small, which between them have created an astonishing resurgent beer scene.
From fiercely traditional brewers producing time-honoured beers in slate Yorkshire squares, to the new-wave craft brewers embracing a dizzying variety of imported hops; from the ancient brewer hemmed in by a tight knot of cobbled streets to the brewery established in a residential care home for adults with life-limiting conditions.
On this entertaining journey around the county, award-winning beer writer Simon Jenkins finds beers from more than 200 breweries, highlights some of his favourites – and meets many of the brewers who make them.
