Beer Links for Boxing Day!

Folks, it's Boxing Day, so don't get too crazy out there in the weird, weird world of consumerism. Instead, kick back, crack open a tasty one and enjoy the last vestiges of 2011. 

Another great Google image search! Original here.
In the News!

I do like tasting rooms!
Beer goes highbrow with beer sommeliers (Hindustan Times)
I must admit that this makes me a little bit uneasy. Beer should always be approachable.

Where do I even start with this’s messed up, but the snark at the end is the ringer.

Local identity infused in Schlafly beer, mission (
Schlafly makes good beer and it is wonderful to see their success in the shadow of a monolith. I hope the succession plan works and the quality doesn’t diminish.

We need all the facts we can get around here.

How about beer? This tells when and how it will flow (Pittsburgh Press)

Perfect article end our December news links on. We will be talking about stouts and winter warmers in January and February. (Big beers deserve 2 whole months!)

Site News!

We will closing down the year with a final review of a festive beer yet to be selected and maybe some commentary on the side. We will have a beer roundtable of the best five beers each of us fellows have had this year and I swear Brian will have an edition of “To the Lab.” We hope your holiday season so far has been joyous and festive.
