1001 Beers

  I really enjoy a good beer. There’s a huge difference between drinking a quality brew and certain carbonated piss-water beverages that pretend they are beers (and shall remain nameless). So I was especially excited when my parents gave me this tome for Christmas. Although I became less excited when I realized I had only tried maybe thirty of the 1001 listed within its pages. Yikes!

While I work my way (slowly) through the book, I’ve been having a lot of fun finding out more about the beers I’m drinking as well as the process that goes into making beer. There are a lot of very knowledgeable people who are in the brewing business or just appreciate the finer qualities of a good beer. And, to top it all off, I got a beer making kit and am trying to do a little research before I jump into making my first home brew.

Here are a few of my favorite resources:

Websites

Brews & Books – Josh Christie keeps his sleek blog up to date with his picks and reviews of all things literary and beer.

Beer Advocate – The quintessential beer website that has pretty much every you need to know about anything beer related. It also has a companion magazine.

Books

Enjoy your beers and remember to drink responsibly! 🙂

  1. Love the book! And beer 🙂
    Would love to know more about it too, and to know how many I have tried lol.
    Enjoy the rest of your book and the beers you’re probably going to drink with it!!

    • It’s fun to check off the ones I’ve tried, Cessie. I give them a grade so when I forget later on I can check to see if I liked it! 🙂

  2. 1001 Beers sounds great!
    Making a home brew seems like fun.
    Really putting 1001 Beers on my to-read list.
