A fascinating look at the worldwide phenomenon of IPA—how it conquered the world briefly in the 19th century and is now on the march again

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 flavor back to beer after decades of domination by global giants and their bland products. The book covers the history of IPA, how its popularity revival started, how IPA is made, and notable IPAs from around the world.
