The Brewmaster's Table by Garret Oliver (Brooklyn Brewery's Brewmaster) is fantastic:

One of my favorite books about beer.

I'm going to go against the grain and say that anybody who says that you need a particular beer to go with specific foods is just plain crazy. That is like wine pairing... Just drink what you enjoy.

thanks everyone for your insight. I'd heard about this book on NPR but forgotten the name. Thanks to BigB as well. I'm learning to listen to you guys' advise after a friend of mine who's brewed for years said "You can always brew better beer than you can buy". Tried my first batch a few weeks ago after it conditioned for 3 weeks and wow!

Tasting Beer by Randy Mosher is a good one.

There's a small section on food pairing in Extreme Brewing, but I've heard many good things about Brewmaster's Table, and that book is on my wish list, so I'd head there first.

You can enjoy any good beer/wine with any good food, but when you have something that pairs well, it takes both the food and drink to the next level. I don't have sophisticated tastes and it doesn't happen to me often, but when it does happen, it's definitely memorable.

He Said Beer, She Said Wine: Impassioned Food Pairings to Debate and Enjoy -- From Burgers to Brie and Beyond by Marnie Old and Sam Calagione

Forced repartee that comes off stupid, but the underlying info is good.
