The Complete Beer Course

With the proliferation of fine craft beers in your local watering holes, it's become a great time to drink good brew — no more swilling watery, flavorless domestics. But, just because it's craft, doesn't mean it's good. The Complete Beer Course: Boot Camp for Beer Geeks: From Novice to Expert in Twelve Tasting Classes ($15) will give you the knowledge to intelligently discuss, and the confidence to selectively discern, the good and the bad. This book breaks it down into a series of reader-friendly courses, helping you understand the process, ingredients, and subtle flavors that make for a tasty beer. By the end you'll be able to casually chat about the hop varieties in your favorite IPA, or pass on that pedestrian pilsner.

  • Serious Barbecue

    Whether you're just now venturing into the world of backdoor barbecuing, or you've been cooking meat over fire for years, Serious Barbecue ($28) will tell you everything you could ever need to know. It starts at the beginning, with detailed advice on working with charcoal and wood, as well as picking out the best grill to suit your purpose. From there you'll learn the secret to working with your butcher to find the best cuts of meat for grilling. Finally, it covers a range of recipes for cooking nearly every type of meat you can think of: from beef and veal to pork and lamb, and everything in between.

  • Let Me Off At The Top by Ron Burgundy

    As you prepare for the forthcoming Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, find deeper insight into the man that is Ron Burgundy, with his memoir Let Me Off at the Top: My Classy Life and Other Musings ($22). Learn how his upbringing led him to choose a life as a news anchor for the acclaimed Action 4 News Team. Read personal stories about the women in his life, the exploits of his news team, and his good friend Baxter (of course). We just hope it comes in a leather-bound version that you can display proudly on the rich-mahogany bookshelves in your apartment.
