I picked up my copy of the Irish ginger beer and stone stout book today. I'm very impressed. It is a great reference work for any collector and gives us an idea of what`s out there. It is a quality publication printed on glossy paper with over 750 well taken photographs of ginger beers, a huge number of which most of us will not have seen before. Neil Cutcliffe has produced a wonderful book that is a delight to look through. I would recommend it to everyone and remember also that the proceeds are going to Alzheimer's UK, a very worthy charity. Well done, Neil.

Just to let you know that the new book arrives with me today - delighted with it. Many thanks for everything and well done on pulling together such fantastic reference material for all us collectors.

This is just to say very well done on writing this informative, well researched and fabulously illustrated edition. I thought I had or knew of all the Belfast gingers but there are a couple in there that I have never even heard of before. Having been involved in research of various kinds over the years I can empathise with both the heartache, frustration and joy that you have gone through to get this book printed.  Hearty congratulations.

Let me start by saying thank you, thank you for bringing together such an invaluable and important resource into the collecting world. I had it in my head that it was gonna be a smaller reference type book but was pleasantly surprised that it was a "coffee table" publication. The larger picture format lends itself to quick referencing and identification of smaller details, which is handy when trying to pin point variations. I found your writing to be clear, precise and very informative which will surely capture the imaginations of anyone who has even a small curiosity of the subject matter. In my view the book gets a 10/10 not just because it's the first publication of it's kind but because of it's thorough, high quality images and layout. I can only imagine the time and fuel spent gathering all these all together.
