Il Paese Senza Birra

"The Land Without Beer."
Had another clear out today. A purge of cookery books. A signed copy of Sophie Grigson's "Organic" fails to make the cut, on the grounds of never having been used. A signed copy of John Burton Race's "French Leave" is similarly discarded, but mainly on the grounds of him not being a very nice man.

I came across a copy of Roger Protz's "300 Beers You Must Try Before You Die". I think it may have been a fortieth birthday present. A quick flick through reveals a sad lack of Italian brews. Italy does a lot of things very well, but beer isn't one of them.

There isn't going to be much need for this in Venice. Regretfully, it goes onto the discard pile.
