Following the stunning success of the first edition of 'Around Bruges in 80 Beers', Podge and Siobhan have done it again! Yes, the second edition is about to be published. With 25 new beer venues featured, and with half the featured beers having changed since the first edition, the book readily demonstrates how quickly things change on the Belgian beer scene.

As with the other books in this series ('Around London in 80 Beers', 'Around Brugge...' 1st edition) the book showcases 80 unusual, different, quirky and fascinating beery places in the featured city.

Let the incredibly knowledgable Podge and Siobhan guide you to places that even many locals don't know about. Every pub has a featured beer, demonstrating the wide choice available if you know where to look. As ever, the book is witty and highly readable, and, as our dear friend John White would have said, it really is a case of 'don't enter Brugge without this book'.

The book is not yet officially on sale, but when launched in the next few weeks, it will be available here:

In the meantime, Podge has preview copies available if you email him directly, via the link on his website:

Even if you have the 1st edition, this new, fully updated edition comes very highly recommended. Once again, many congratulations are due to Podge and Siobhan for their superb work.
