Pete Brown goes into a detailed dive into the ingredients of beer in this piece following his wanderings around the world, where he tries to understand different global interpretations of beer and the disparate endpoints that will take you, from what's nominally a simple list of the same ingredients.

I love the way Brown writes: knowledgeable and ever-keen on his topic, yet coming across as a somewhat shambolic amateur - yet still delivers a neat balance of the science, philosophy, and anecdote of each of the adventures, all underpinned by an obvious love of enjoying a nice beer.
