Book Review: Drinkology Wine

By Rob Theakston | February 26, 2013 |

With the verdicts on the previous editions of the Drinkology series split right down the middle, I was curious which way the words would sway in this third Drinkology treatise, devoted to all things involving the almighty grape.

By Christopher Null | April 8, 2012 |

As lackluster as I found the first Drinkology book to be, I didn’t have high expectations for this treatise on all things beer.

We had a pretty generous amount of reading material on our desks, which resulted in roughly 1/4 of our book reviews for the entire 5+ years of the site’s history being published in 28 days. Here’s a quick catch up with links to each review:…

Book Review: Brewed Awakening

By Christopher Null | August 4, 2012 |

Joshua M. Bernstein is a fountain of beer-centric knowledge, and if you found yourself sitting next to him at the bar you’d probably get your ears filled with talk of saisons, cask ales, and Berliner weisses. Brewed Awakening, subtitled Behind the Beers and Brewers Leading the World’s Craft Brewing Revolution, is well-written in an engaging…
