Some bits and pieces this weekend.
One of my daily blog reads is a wine blog: Bigger Than Your Head.
Are you a beer drinker who is willing to learn more about wine? Then read this blog. Not willing? Read it anyway. You may expand your beverage palate. Fredrik Koeppel has just won Best Wine Reviews from the American Wine Blog Awards 2009.
Our beer blogger abroad, Evan Rail, recently watched as a lot of his blog writing disappeared into an e-wormhole. Fortunate for him and us, he's found a trans-warp drive to retrieve much of it, such as this interview with Jean-Pierre Van Roy of Brasserie Cantillon. It's worth reading if only for this bon mot:
Beer is not made for judging nor for looking at. It’s made for drinking.
Yes, yes, and if you've missed my point, YES!
BeerNews.org reports that Philly Beer Week is in high gear. Other cities, such as Asheville, North Carolina and Baltimore, Maryland may soon follow.
The BeerActivist reports that US acreage of organic hops is increasing. Colorado is at the forefront.
