With the beer industry experiencing something of a craft beer revolution, both in the UK, Australia and the US, the pressure is on for brewers to produce top class beers for an ever-demanding and discerning beer drinker.

Just this week it was announced that a new craft beer awards celebrating and rewarding the best of Australian brews will debut at this year’s Sydney Craft Beer Week.

US craft beer exports rocketed by 49% this year while the number of US craft breweries operating throughout the states crossed the 3,000 mark for the first time since the 1870s. 

This can only be a good thing for the industry, driving up not only the quality of a brew, but beer drinkers’ appreciation and understanding of what is a masterful art. Even a little knowledge can enhance one’s enjoyment of a beer, and this collection of books is a good place to start.

Whether you are an aspiring brewer, history buff, foodie or simply an avid beer drinker, one of these books, written by some of the industry’s leading lights, is sure to appeal.
