If this is Heaven, it must be Belgium.

I've loved Belgian beers for years, but never truly understood them fully until now. Where do you begin to classify them? To choose one to drink? Michael Jackson shows you how. From the ancient beginning of the brewing of Belgian beer, to now, as you smell, taste, and swallow, Michael Jackson takes you through the process. This is education in the most delightful way. Great photographs, delightful anecdotes,You almost feel you are on a stool beside him. My wife,who is Belgian born,loved the insights into her native land and traditions. If you can only buy one book on beer, this must be it!


This is a great book if you love belgian beer. So many great pictures and chapters to browse through on a cold winter night by the fire with a bottle of aged Westmalle tripel or perhaps a Kwak. Very thorough, he obviously spent a lot of time "researching" his topic!

Belgian Beer Bible

Michael Jackson belies his English heritage to write perhaps the best Belgian beer book in existance. More than just tasting notes, he describes his visits to the breweries, his discussions with the brewers, the smells, the sounds, everything you need to feel like you are there! A prized addition to any library.

As good as the beers it discusses.

Michael Jackson is a very good writer on matters alcoholic, and this is an excellent discussion of Belgian beers. He discusses the different styles, the traditional pairing of food and beer in Belgium, and the people that brew. His tasting remarks are short and to the point. If you are a "beer geek," buy this book.
