Read A Good Beer Lately?
Our "Beer Break At Work" at 3:20 p.m. each day on Oldiez 96.1 gives you a chance to hear news about brews, and maybe win a Happy Hour from the Killabrew Saloon And Irish Pub. So, I talk a good game about beer, but if you're really into it, you might want to pick up a book on the subject.
According to Draft Magazine, here are five books about beer that you might want to have on your shelf:
"CHEESE & BEER by Janet Fletcher ($25, Andrews McMeel): Fletcher, a James Beard Award-winning cheese writer, smartly waxes on beer styles and the cheeses that love them.
THE POCKET BEER GUIDE by Stephen Beaumont & Tim Webb ($15, Sterling): The gold standard of worldly beer guides, shrunk to fit in your jeans.
DRINK YOUR OWN GARDEN by Judith Glover ($20, Sterling): Glover’s revised how-tos teach homebrewers to tinker with dandelion, nettles and more.
BEYOND THE PALE by Ken Grossman ($25, Wiley): The Sierra Nevada Brewing founder’s compelling rise from homebrewer to beer legend.
WORLD BEER TOUR by Tim Hampson ($40, D.K.): Visit more than 800 global breweries from South Africa to São Paulo via your coffee table.
