The Craft Beer Dictionary

This spectacular new book just arrived on my desk, courtesy of Octopus Books. It’s a delightfully illustrated guide to the world of craft beer by Richard Croasdale, with help from two of our favourite artists. Jonathan Christie was the creative director and Jonny Hannah was the illustrator. It’s an A-Z with a J for Jonathan & Jonny. Here’s a peek inside to whet your appetite. Cheers!

Postscript: On the day of this blogpost we walked over Hampstead Heath and on our way home, inspired by this book, we called in to sample the exquisite delights of the Southampton Arms at Gospel Oak. It looks & feels & tastes & sounds like the perfect pub. It’s my new favourite.

We are the only dedicated ale & cider house in London
to sell only beers & ciders from small independent UK breweries.
