As a tag line for a beer guide, “Foam is where the heart is” is hard to top.

Where to Drink Beer (Phaidon, $30) is a new handbook that highlights the top places to do just that in more than 1,600 establishments worldwide. The volume includes such idiosyncratic spots as a stall next to the Central Ferry Pier in Hong Kong, a brewery attached to a toy store in Maryland, and a laundromat in Brooklyn. What makes this book notable, though, is the author: Jeppe Jarnit-Bjergsø, a beer world celebrity, known for his exhilarating Evil Twin brews and for making the concept of gypsy, or nomadic, brewing popular around the globe.
