Our Books

We’ve got a range of more substantial reading, as the cliche goes, ‘to suit every pocket’.


Detail from the cover of Gambrinus Waltz.

Gambrinus Waltz

This short e‑book is avail­able exclu­sive­ly for Ama­zon Kin­dle for £2.00 – the fruits of a year’s research for less than the price of a Cor­nish pasty. It tells the sto­ry of Lon­don’s first lager beer boom between 1868 and 1914. It has a cast of eccen­tric Ger­mans, tales of espi­onage, and pen por­traits of long-gone water­ing holes from the seedy Strand to the glit­ter of Pic­cadil­ly Cir­cus.

  • …well writ­ten… superbly researched…” – Tim Holt, Jour­nal of the Brew­ery His­to­ry Soci­ety
  • An excel­lent e‑book” – Mar­tyn Cor­nell

Brew Britannia: the strange rebirth of British beer

Then, of course, there’s our baby, of which we’re very proud. It tells the sto­ry of how Britain got from Wat­ney’s to Brew­Dog, via CAMRA, in the space of 40 years. It won us a cou­ple of awards, got us nom­i­nat­ed for anoth­er, and peo­ple have said some very nice things about it. As of July 2017 a new edi­tion is avail­able – small­er for­mat, cheap­er (RRP £8.99), with cor­rec­tions but not updates. It’s avail­able as an e‑book (around £6–10) or paper­back (£9–13) from the fol­low­ing places, among many oth­ers:
