  1. Unusual Pubs Cover

    Unusual Pubs by Boot, Bike and Boat

    The author has spent three years seeking out quirky hostelries that offer more than your average local. They're Britain's most surprising licensed premises, where the reader's curiosity will be sated as well as their thirst. Walking and cycling trails to the pubs are included, as are waterways, making this a useful companion for leisure travellers.

    Entries include pubs in a castle, abbey, windmill, shed and stable; former cinemas, a jail, a chapel, England's first car factory and the world's oldest grand music hall. Others are on boats, in caves and even a disused public toilet. Yet more have collections such as bookmarks, ties or musical instruments. There's an inn where Oliver Cromwell held court, others that inspired Charles Dickens.

    The author has been on Britain's most bizarre pub crawl and now you can, too. Fully illustrated with more than 150 author's photos and 17 historical ones.

  3. The Apple Orchard Front

    The Apple Orchard: The Story of Our Most English Fruit: (Signed editions available)

    'An orchard in not a field. It's not a forest or a copse. It couldn't occur naturally; it's definitely cultivated. But an orchard doesn't override the natural order: it enhances it, it dresses it up. It demonstrates that man and nature together can - just occasionally - create something more beautiful and (literally) more fruitful than either could alone. The vivid brightness of the laden trees, studded with jewels, stirs some deep race memory and makes the heart leap. Here is bounty, and excitement.'

    Taking us through the seasons in England's apple-growing heartlands, this magical book uncovers the stories and folklore of our most familiar fruit.

    'His ability to laugh at himself, openness to wonder and willingness to go wherever the search takes him make Brown an engaging writer and The Apple Orchard an entertaining journey' - Mail on Sunday

  4. IPA Cover

    IPA - A Legend in Our Time

    This is a long-awaited book from Roger Protz, a highly respected authority on beer, on the rebirth of IPA or India Pale Ale, one of the most popular styles in today's craft beer revolution.

    Around the world, young brewers, with passion, reverence and commitment, are bringing flavour back to beer after decades of domination by global giants and their bland products. Such is the fervour for IPA that the journey started by India Pale Ale in Victorian England is far from over.

    How the revival started: Covers the fascinating events that caused IPA to take off in the early 1990s, both in London at seminars and festivals, and in the US. By 2014, IPA is the leading category at the annual Great American Beer Festival. The renaissance is now worldwide, with IPAs brewed in Australia, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Germany, Italy, Japan and elsewhere.

    The history of IPA: its rise and fall were equally spectacular: Starting out as a beer for India, the style was first developed at the turn of the 19th century by a small brewery, Hodgson's, in East London. A three or four month journey to India was ideal for the style of beer and soon other breweries were sending large supplies to India. But IPA s hey-day is brief. By the end of the century, American and German brewers were sending lager beer to India and supplying ice to keep it cold. British brewers retreated and classic Victorian IPAs were dead.

    How IPA is made: Covers the 19th-century method of brewing IPAs in Burton; and other recipes from craft breweries now using Victorian recipes?

    Classic IPAs: Classic IPAs from the 19th century Ballantine's IPA in the US, Worthington's White Shield in England and McEwans in Scotland.

    The great revival: The role of New World hops from the US and New Zealand in creating dynamic new aromas and flavours for modern IPAs. Country by country tasting notes and key recipes for some 250 of the world s best IPAs, including the US, Britain, Canada, Australia & New Zealand, Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Netherlands, and Japan.

    New beers on the block: The worldwide popularity of IPA has led to imaginative spin-offs from the traditional style

  5. The Pub - a Cultural Institution

    The Pub - a Cultural Institution

    Legendary beer writer Pete Brown presents pubs that ooze atmosphere, be it associated with food, people, architecture, locations or decor. For Pete, the best pubs are those that invite you to stay longer. Some are Victorian palaces, others ancient inns with stunning views across the hills; some are ale havens, others gastropubs. A favoured few are uniquely eccentric, the kinds of places that are just as likely to have terrible reviews on Trip Advisor as great ones, because many people don't realize that the outside toilets, limp sandwiches on the bar and really disturbing full-size mannequin glaring at you from the corner are all part of the charm.

    Discover 300 atmospheric pubs alongside fascinating snippets of local history, pen portraits of punters and publicans, legends, yarns and myths, and a look into trends and types in the pub world.

    'I can't recommend this book too highly' Steve Hamburg, All About Beer magazine.

    Patrick O'Neill studied physics and spent more than 30 years working as an engineer in the electronics industry. His science and engineering experience proved useful in running CAMRA beer festivals and, for several decades, the bar and cellar of a busy Private Members' Club, and this book was produced as a result of that experience.
