  2. Historic Coaching Inns

    Historic Coaching Inns of the Great North Road:- A guide to travelling the legendary highway

    The Great North Road is part of British folklore, the Route 66 of Britain, except instead of gas stations and diners we have magnificent coaching inns, part of the living history of our islands. Taking in the history of these buildings (including a chapter on highwaymen, who often concealed themselves in secret rooms and tunnels in these inns,) as well as the literature that has celebrated them – from Charles Dickens through to J B Priestley – Roger Protz describes these coaching houses with an expert and discerning eye, producing not only a great pub guide but a gazetteer of the history and culture that are draped along this iconic road.

  4. Home-brewing problem solver

    CAMRA's Home-brewing Problem Solver

    MEMBER ONLY OFFER £8.99

    Real ale and other craft beers have become increasingly popular over the past few years, and as a result more people have been compelled to try making their own homebrew. However, while the concept behind making beer is simple, the execution can at times seem complex and confusing. The key to bridging the gap between brewing in theory and practice is being able to spot the signs of trouble and know how to respond.

    CAMRA’s Home-brewing Problem Solver provides the information you need to nip problems in the bud – and, better still, to avoid them in the first place.

    Whether you're a first-timer trying out a new hobby or an old hand looking to produce a finely crafted artisan ale, CAMRA's Home-brewing Problem Solver provides the information you need to nip problems in the bud - and, better still, to avoid them in the first place. Inge Russell PhD, DSc, FIBD, FRSB (Retired Editor – Journal of the Institute of Brewing)

    "CAMRA’S Home-Brewing Problem Solver is an outstanding practical book that provides excellent guidance for the home-brewer. It is clearly written and addresses the 100 most often asked troubleshooting questions when brewing beer. Each of the 100 well-selected and presented questions is accompanied by its own photographic page to help the reader visualize the problem. The book is broken into eight very intuitive chapters. For the 100 questions, each question has the problem/cause/solution well-articulated on one page, with ‘call out boxes’ or additional information to help the reader on the adjacent photographic page. Difficult concepts, such staling and trans-2-nonenal formation, are explained in a clear and understandable manner. It is rare to see a troubleshooting book with such excellent graphics, clear writing, and at 222 pages at a very affordable price. This book is a valuable addition to any home brewer’s book collection. It is pleasure to read and will help the home brewer avoid many common problems. The authors are to be commended on producing this book, which I am sure was not an easy task. I recommend it highly to both home and craft brewers as an excellent reference book. "

  5. Real Heritage Pubs of the North West

    Real Heritage Pubs of the North West

    This definitive and unique new guide is the result of many years' research by CAMRA to discover pubs that have truly historic surviving interiors in an area ranging from the Cheshire plain to the Lake District. It provides descriptions and information on over 200 pubs, amongst which there are unspoilt country locals, Victorian drinking palaces and mighty roadhouses. The book has features on how the pub developed, what's distinctive about pubs in the North West, how people a century ago could expect to be served drinks at their table, and how they used the pub for take-out sales in the pre-supermarket era.

    Lavishly illustrated with colour photographs throughout, includes county maps showing pub locations.

    The editor architectural historian Geoff Brandwood is passionate about pubs, and is a former chairman of the Victorian Society. He is author of Britain's Best Real Heritage Pubs (2013), London Heritage Pubs (2008), both for CAMRA, and co-author of English Heritage's acclaimed Licensed to Sell (2011).

    A wonderful addition to CAMRA's heritage series.

  7. Miracle Brew cover

    Miracle Brew: Hops, Barley, Water, Yeast and the Nature of Beer

    Beer is the most popular alcoholic drink on the planet, but few who enjoy it know much about how its four ingredients – malted barley, hops, yeast and water – miraculously combine. We’ve been brewing and drinking beer for thousands of years, without understanding how or why the brewing process works. In the Middle Ages, yeast was called ‘godisgoode’ because no one had any idea what fermentation was. Malting barley, too, has for centuries seemed genuinely wondrous: it’s only in the last 200 years that science has identified and understood how man and yeast work together to gently (or not so gently) persuade this humble grain to give up its sugary stash for fermentation into beer. 

    From the birth of brewing (and civilization) in the Middle East, through an exploration of water’s unmurky depths and the surreal madness of drink-sodden hop-blessings in the Czech Republic, to the stunning recreation of the first ever modern beer – Miracle Brew is an extraordinary journey through the nature and science of brewing.

    A journey into the world of the four remarkable ingredients of beer – Hops, Water, Barley and Yeast – by the UK’s most read, recognised and enjoyable of beer writers.
