The Best General Beer Book

Recommended Posts

What would people recommend as the best general, basic book on beers. Something readable for someone who wants to take his beer drinking a little more seriously while still a comprehensive reference.

I'd prefer suggestions for books in print, because that would be easier to order.

I think Garrett Oliver's Brewmaster's table is precisely what you're looking for. There is a lot of general information on beer in there- how it is made, style breakdowns, some history, a reference section- and it is layed out in an easy to follow manner. You can even look at the central 'theme' of the book- pairing beer with food- as a bonus, if you like.

      Picked this up this morning, not because I wanted it, just to add to my collection of silliness.
       

       
       
       
      Love the brewery's honesty in their choice of name.
       
      My only question is "Why? I mean "Why?'" (to be uttered in a tone of despair).
       
      It tastes like some one had a glass of grapefruit juice with breakfast and then forgot to wash the glass before pouring a beer hours later.

      500 years ago, Martin Luther started off the Reformation. In a way, this not only changed religious affairs in Europe, but also changed our beer.
