Beer related sites...

Beer, Brewing and the Internet were not always best buddies. I just can't believe what has happened over the last 10 years. If you haven't checked these sites out yet, you should. BeerAdvocate.com Proves useful when I want a new beer to try and on my way to Shangy's. Also helps me understand why other people like 1997 John Barleycorn Barley Wine from Mad River brewing company. Even after reading the reviews it didn't help though. Oh well, not my cup of tea I guess. The owner did take the case back happily. Now that is good business. I walked out with the Old Ale I wrote about earlier among others. BeerMe.com This is a new one for me. The reviews/tasting notes/database entries don't exactly jive with BeerAdvocate all the time, but, there is a ton of info here. I'm very interested in exploring this one a little more. RealBeer.com Um...I haven't used this alot, but, it seems like there is a ton of stuff ranging from brew pubs to beer education and a discussion board. I liked the article they had on hosting your own beer tasting. It talked about the strategy including flights, timing, and coaching of the event. Wikipedia Beer Stuff If you are the kind of person that likes to know about the history, chemistry, jargon, types and literally anything else this is a great way to start. I truely love Wikipedia. Who would have thought an enclylopedia that anybody can edit would be so useful. Check it out. Well that ought to hold you for a while. Did I miss any essentials?
