Against All Hops: Techniques and Philosophy for Creating Extraordinary Botanical Beers

By Butch Heilshorn, Page Street Publishing

If you’re looking for inspiration that will shake you out of your brewing rut, Against All Hops might be just the book to do it. We’ve written about Earth Eagle Brewings in these pages before—their creative approach to foraged beers is as fascinating as it is delicious—but this new book from cofounder Butch Heilshorn codifies what they’ve learned from years of experimentation. The ingredient-by-ingredient primer includes gorgeous photography and thoughtful recipes perfect for homebrewers looking for something new. —Jamie Bogner

Project Extreme Brewing: An Enthusiast’s Guide To Extreme Brewing At Home

By Sam Calagione and Jason & Todd Alstrom, Quarry Books

Leave it to Sam Calagione, founder of Dog sh Head Cra Brewery, to inject some needed energy into our brewing library. This collaboration with the bros from Beer Advocate pairs a basic primer on homebrewing with 44 (or so) recipes from Dogfish Head and brewing industry friends (including Earth Eagle Brewings, see above ). We’re huge fans of commercial brewers celebrating and educating homebrewers, and this collection of weird and wonderful techniques and recipes is as inspiring as it is useful. —Jamie Bogner
