"The Homebrewer's Garden is a natural marriage of two great hobbies..." -- Craig Bystrynski, Editor of Brew Your Own magazine
"The Homebrewer's Garden, is quite a timely book. Even if you are not a beer drinker (I'm not...), when you read recipes like those for "Mumm" and "Black Ale," made using herbs other than hops, or "Chili Beer" using hot Thai peppers, you may be itching to try brewing, if only to use as unique gifts." -- The Herbal Connection, Winter 1999

It took a couple hours to read it, cover to cover, and it had a lot of good insights and tid-bits.
I'm planting my first hops this year (Hallertau, Cascade, Nugget, Stirling, Fuggle and Mt. Hood) and will keep this book handy. It has a lot of information on growing and taking care of hop plants and was worth the money. I'm going to have to try some of the herb beer recipes too.
What would I change about this book? Not much really. The drawings inside the book are great and the book itself is of high quality.
I'd recommend it to anyone wanting to learn more about brewing good malt drinks. :D
It also has an easy to use reference chart of hop maladies, what they mean for the hops and what you need to do to heal them. This book is definitely gift-worthy for anyone who knows someone else who is interested in giving hops or barley a go in their yard for the first time.
