Beer in the Balkans sees Tom Burnett travel around the Balkans, looking to try national beers from the countries in the region. It combines history, sights to see see in the cities visited and the beers that he finds (along with some interesting characters). The brief history and attractions are interesting and written in an informal way, whilst the parts about the beer are less like a book and more like a chat with mates at the local. Easy to read and very enjoyable – I strongly recommend it to anyone who enjoys informal travel writing and/or beer.
