View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Amber, Gold & Black is the most comprehensive history of British beer in all its variety ever written. Learn all there is to know about the history of the beers Britons have brewed and enjoyed down the centuries: Bitter, Porter, Mild and Stout, IPA, Brown Ale, Burton Ale and Old Ale, Barley Wine and Stingo, Golden Ale, Gale Ale, Honey Ale, White Beer, Heather Ale and Mum.

This is a celebration of the depths of our beery heritage, a look at the roots of the styles we enjoy today, as well as those ales and beers we have lost, and a study of how the liquids that fill our beer glasses, amber gold and black, developed over the years. Whatever your knowledge of beer, from beginner to buff, Amber, Gold & Black will tell you things you never knew before about Britain's favourite drink.

A unique insight into the course of British brewing over the last 200 years, well-researched and well-written ... I’d recommend it to anyone who wants to gain a greater understanding of the history of British beer.’’

Ron Pattinson
