This edited collection examines the various influences, relationships, and developments beer has had from distinctly spatial perspectives. The chapters explore the functions of beer and brewing from unique and sometimes overlapping historical, economic, cultural, environmental and physical viewpoints. Topics from authors - both geographers and non-geographers alike - have examined the influence of beer throughout history, the migration of beer on local to global scales, the dichotomous nature of global production and craft brewing, the neolocalism of craft beers, and the influence local geography has had on beer´s most essential ingredients: water, starch (malt), hops, and yeast. At the core of each chapter remains the integration of spatial perspectives to effectively map the identity, changes, challenges, patterns and locales of the geographies of beer.

Explore the vibrant world of craft beer with Lonely Planet Global Beer Tour . We´ve selected some of the finest tap rooms, bars and breweries that thirsty travellers can visit in 30 countries around the world. Discover how to find them, which beers to sample, and learn about local places of interest with our recommended itineraries. Each country is introduced by a beer expert and includes regional beverages that shouldn´t be missed. There´s a world of great beer to taste - go and discover it! So why go beer touring, especially when it´s easy and cheap to find interesting craft beers in your local shop? Firstly, craft beer doesn´t travel too well and is affected by changes in temperature and long distances. And secondly, due to the explosion in small-scale breweries, many great beers aren´t distributed outside their city or region. Beer often tastes better the closer it is to home, especially if that´s straight from a tap in the actual brewery. The craft beer revolution has seen waves of breweries open up to the public, not just in the United States, the UK and Australia, where the trend is well established, but all over the world. Visit European beer capitals like Belgium, Italy and Germany, and sample local favourites in Canada, Australia and New Zealand. In Asia, explore hotspots in Japan, Vietnam and China, then venture to South America, Africa and the Middle East. Each brewery is accompanied by a selection of sightseeing ideas and activities, from local museums and galleries, to great hikes or bike rides. The book also features fun sections on beer trails, hangover cures and the world´s wildest beers. There´s also practical advice like how to ask for a beer in the local language and the ideal snacks to accompany your drink.
