The American Craft Beer Cookbook

Not every recipe in the book is made with beer, but they all taste great when paired with beer — and isn't that the important part? The American Craft Beer Cookbook: 155 Recipes from Your Favorite Brewpubs and Breweries ($13) offers up instructions on how to cook everything from appetizers to desserts, including some stuff you'd expect — like pub-friendly foods and barbecue — to some you wouldn't — like cupcakes and ice cream floats. But hey, it's all beer-friendly, so it's all good.

  • Smoke: New Firewood Cooking

    You can grill. You might even own a smoker. But you haven't explored all the culinary techniques this time-honored cook method provides until you've read Smoke: New Firewood Cooking ($25). Penned by award-winning chef Tim Byres, this 250-page tome offers up information on smoking on the stovetop, making relishes and salads with smoked peppers and vegetables, grilling with rood planks, using smoke-cured meats in different dishes, and even building your own firepit, smokehouse, and/or spit roast — just in time for summer.

  • Things Come Apart

    As technology advances and our gadgets and tools become more complex, the little pieces that make everything work seem more and more abstract. Things Come Apart: A Teardown Manual for Modern Living ($19) explores the interior of fifty classic designs through more than 180 color photographs. The objects are arranged first by size and then by complexity, and are accompanied by essays from noteworthy minds in the restoration, DIT, and design innovation fields. A great addition to the library of any curious mind, be they an engineer, tinkerer, or just plain ol' repairman.
