Adrian Tierney-Jones: United Kingdom of Beer

Our Imperial Extra Double Stout has been featured in a new book from renowned beer writer Adrian Tierney-Jones!

United Kingdom of Beer will take readers on a fascinating journey across the British Isles, exploring 250 of the finest beers available in bottles and cans.

The first title of its kind that focuses entirely on the domestic market, the United Kingdom of Beer offers a comprehensive overview of the numerous types and styles of beer available in modern Britain, complete with tasting notes and fascinating background stories about each beer as well as an insightful look into how to pair the beers with food, mood and occasion.

With a wide selection covering nine different beer styles ranging from muscular Best Bitter to midnight-black Imperial Stout, it is the perfect guide to find a beer to cater for all occasions and moods, from an evening spent in front of the fire to a barbecue with friends.

Written and researched by Beer Writer of the Year 2017 and author of several books including The Seven Moods of Craft Beer, this new volume draws on Tierney-Jones’ expertise and passion for excellent beer.

Speaking about the book, Tierney-Jones said: “Whether on a day out or meeting up with friends, extraordinary beer helps to make great days even better. Coming out of the pandemic, 2022 is a fantastic year to enjoy the many delights that the exceptional breweries across the UK have to offer. I am thrilled and delighted to use my expertise to select and share the best beers from around the UK with readers who are as passionate about beer as I am.”

Fully illustrated in colour, the United Kingdom of Beer is the latest book from the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA), creators of the wildly successful Good Beer Guide which has been an essential resource for all fans of beer for 50 years.

It is now available for pre-order and will officially go on sale from March 31 2022, for the price of £17.99. It will be available for purchase online from or by contacting, and will also be available in all good bookshops.

An accompanying beer box will also be on sale, featuring brews from the book allowing readers to drink along and join Adrian himself on a bespoke tasting event.
