On Tap New England
by Steve Johnson

This is the most comprehensive book yet on the thriving New England brewing scene. Johnson judiciously begins with background information and definitions to provide a common frame of reference. He then carefully defines his five classifications of beer establishments, and moves on to briefly delve into the history of the craft brewery revolution and to profile key players in the New England brew scene. The book taps into beer itself with a short synopsis on brewing and evaluating beer and explanations of styles and definitions of beer terms. But the heart of the book is a state-by-state description of 44 brewing establishments of New England. He introduces the reader to the people behind the breweries, history of each establishment, atmosphere and location, beer names and descriptions, menus, and basic information such as addresses, maps, phone numbers, hours of operation, and tours offered. Like Johnson's other On Tap guides, this one offers entertaining and enlightening reading for both veteran and novice beer enthusiasts.

As in previous On Tap guides, Johnson provides a description of the brewing process, beer styles information, brewing history in Northern California, beer glossary, and a listing of major beer festivals.

America's Best Beers
by Christopher Finch and W. Scott Griffiths

Like most of the beer guide books, this one begins with a history of beers. From there it moves on to a brief explanation of the brewing process and beer styles, followed by a meaty directory of 350 breweries and their beers, organized into five US regions. The authors offer a paragraph or two on each establishment, then they each rate the beers they've sampled, and finally offer a subjective quote about some breweries, which is fun reading.

Kit brewing is a popular way to get started into homebrewing. Now, beer-brewing brothers, Joe and Dennis Fisher, have written this reference book to help kit users find success in their first batch of beer.

50 Great Homebrewing Tips
by David Weisberg

This is a collection of tips and bare facts that are of immediate practical use to new homebrewers. However, though brevity, good organization and simple readability are present, the book achieves only modest success as a brewing aid. The beginning brewer will find "Tip #1: Throw away the directions" disconcerting at best. Although the tip is well understood by experienced homebrewers, the average beginner needs a simple recipe to provide a starting point for later reference. Most of the 50 tips are common knowledge among advanced homebrewers, but may be beneficial to beginning brewers.

The Ultimate Book of Beer Trivia
