Stumbled on this when i was at Walden books yesterday. Very cool book so far. has a very detailed history of beer in the world, as well as all kiunds of info on different brewing regions throughout the worls, homebrewing, great moments in beer, the best bars on earth, beer spokesmodels, health benefits, beer can crafts, you name it.

The Big Book of Beer. "everything you ever wanted to know about the greatest beverage on earth. Written by Duane Swierczynski and published by Quirk books.
Interesting book. It is not a book you read, it is one you skim through for fun. Contains a lot of trivial misc information that you could bring up while at the bar.
