A priceless book

Well, over $100 a pop, if you want to get the original spiral-bound version of my proper book. Maybe not priceless, but pricey.

While you can pick up a signed copy of the paperback edition for just a fraction of that cost. While still getting 100% of the historical fun and recipes. All in my own inimitable, idiosyncratic style. An heirloom that will be passed down through future generations. Becoming priceless.

Here are some testimonials:

"I don't believe there is a book that is as comprehensive on British styles."
"A well-assembled collection of properly researched material"
"Compendious summary of British beer styles across nearly three centuries"
"Simultaneously the densest and one of the most easy-reading books on brewing."
"Not the most amazing brewing book ever written"

I think an extraneous "not" has wandered into the last one.

Buy a signed paperback edition of the Home Brewer's Guide to Vintage Beer. For locations inside Europe.

$100! Maybe I shouldn't keep mine in the magazine rack next to the toilet.

Mine is signed by the author, so probably worth about $20.

Hey, I can't get the link to work on either. I should just be able to click on the buy now button and a link with the price and everything shows up right?

I really love the book and it cannot be stated enough that it is so much more than just a collection of your blog posts like the other books. This one has a completely new layout, tons of pictures and graphics, and most importantly a really comprehensive text explaining all aspects of historical British brewing in easy-to-understand terms.

Definitely would recommend to any homebrewer!

thanks for the praise for my "proper" book, as I always call it. I think I did a good job. In the words I was allowed. The original manuscript was 10,000 words longer.

Have to pull you up on my other books being collections of blog posts. Other than my travel report books, my recent ones have all been written as books. With excerpts posted on the blog.
