UK brewing has seen unprecedented growth in the last decade. Breweries of all shapes and sizes are flourishing and the range of home-grown beers available in pubs and shops has never been so diverse. British beer consumers have never had it so good and, headed by real ale, a 'craft' beer revolution is sweeping the country. CAMRA have brought together some the Britain's top beer writers and spoken to key figures in British brewing - hop growers, maltsters, brewers, pub owners and critics - to celebrate Britain's Beer Revolution. These experts look behind the beer labels and shine a spotlight on what makes British beer so good. National and regional brewers with generations of tradition rub shoulders with new micro-brewers, and popular classic beers jostle for space at the bar with modern interpretations and innovative new masterpieces. All the brewers featured are dedicated to one thing...Making great British beer.

"A whole new perspective on drinking. Highly recommended" - Dr Rafal Zakrzewski, Cambridge University TAKE A BREAK FROM DRINKING TO IMPROVE YOUR LIFE Drinking is awesome, but if the grog monster has you by the tail then it is easy to get into a rut and waste your life away, especially if you are in a soul destroying job. Whether you are curious about improving your health, relationships or simply creating a better version of you, this book will show you how giving up alcohol for a period can let you do this. THIS GUIDE TO TAKING A BREAK FROM THE DRINK TEACHES: - How David went from one of Australia's leading beer experts and writers to going off the drink for a year and giving up his job as a partner in a major law firm to become a children's book writer - How to justify taking a break from drinking to yourself and to your peers - How to cope with risk of boredom - How to gain zen like clarity after breaking the drinking cycle - How to redesign your life to become a better, more joyous version of you - How to make a decision about your future after your time off the drink. Testimonials A whole new perspective on drinking. Highly recommended - Dr Rafal Zakrzewski, Cambridge University In this amazing little book, author David Downie writes of his experience with setting down the drink for a predetermined time as "an experiment," and discovering a richer, more meaningful life because of it... The simple fact is David Downie has distilled the essence of the 12 Steps and packaged it for us here. I would recommend this book to anyone, with the "true-blue alcoholic" as a major exception, as the author himself points out. He delivers pints of wisdom liberally sparkled with humor throughout. Included are vivid descriptions of his life as a drinker, as well as what his life has become after the experiment. Along way, he offers general actions anyone who wishes can try for their own experiment with life between drinks. If this book had been available thirty-some years ago, it likely would have saved me and everyone else in my life a lot of heartache. Five stars and extra kudos for a book well done. - Ron, The Spirit of Recovery Blog What David has done is in fact absolute genius. ... I think my favourite sentence in the whole book is when he states simply that his life changed when he stopped living it in the night-time and started living in the day. It's beautifully simple and totally accurate... Between Drinks fills a niche that has been sadly lacking in recovery literature. David is not interested in converting alcoholics. He just wants people who are unhappy abusing alcohol to know that it does not have to be that way. I f*cking loved this book. It's long overdue and I fully recommend it without reservation. Carrie, New Life After Blog As someone who has had a break from the booze for an extended period (10 months) I can honestly say that this book has inspired me to have another break.... I give this book the highest rating possible at 5 stars. It could quite possibly change your life! That is if you are ready for it. There is a whole new world on "the other side" that most people will never ever see. - BDK, Independent Amazon Reviewer
