Great Food Great Beer : 185 Flavorful Recipes for Pairing Beer with Food  foreword by August A. Busch IV; photography by Noel Barnhurst

Imagine coming home after a long day of work and drinking a cold one while relaxing in front of the television. One might expect a brewery cookbook to contain gut-sticking food recipes, like the featured spicy pork ribs and burgers with a gorgonzola twist. However, lighter palette-tinglers such as Lemony Couscous with Mint and Feta are included as well.  Emphasizing beer-as-pairing rather than beer-as-ingredient, this cookbook offers something for virtually everyone, even if they don’t enjoy a frosty lager.  (Library Journal)__________________________________________________________________________

B is for Beer by  Tom Robbins

In his “children’s book for grown-ups” Robbins (Even Cowgirls Get the Blues) takes readers on a whimsical tour of all things beer, written in the language of a bedtime story. Factoids about everything from how beer is made to the number of gallons of beer sold globally each year are woven into this story about six-year-old Gracie Perkel, who craves time with her beer-guzzling Uncle Moe. When Moe disappoints Gracie, she reaches for a drink and is visited by the Beer Fairy, who flies her through the “Seam” and offers an education about life and, of course, beer.  (Publishers Weekly)
