Review:

'Read Chris's book and then place it on your coffee table; it will perhaps give those who browse it an easy introduction into why you are a brewery historian.'



When these 30 classic homes of beer brewed their final pint, a significant part of a proud heritage that had stood for centuries was lost forever. Arnot was right to mark its passing.



'A lovely book, nostalgic in its recollection of breweries and their beers long gone, but on the other hand it's not dewy-eyed.'



The best Christmas present we can recommend for anyone with even a passing interest in the heritage of brewing. It is elegiac without being nostalgic, immensely informative and equally entertaining

'A lovely book, nostalgic in its recollection of breweries and their beers long gone, but on the other hand it's not dewy-eyed.'

Chris's efforts are impressive. He uses his journalist's skills to wrinkle out former brewery executives and workers and listen to their stories

A must for anyone who has ever visited a pub and wondered about the beers and breweries that have vanished.

When these 30 classic homes of beer brewed their final pint, a significant part of a proud heritage that had stood for centuries was lost forever. Arnot was right to mark its passing.

'We get a sense of what we have lost in our globalised but blander world.'

'Read Chris's book and then place it on your coffee table; it will perhaps give those who browse it an easy introduction into why you are a brewery historian.'
