1001 Beers You Must Taste Before You Die

I wrote a handful of the entries in this new beer book, 1001 Beers You Must Taste Before You Die. This thing is a monster encyclopedia of beer descriptions and beer porn (someone recently told me this term isn’t as intuitive as I thought it was – beer porn is pictures of beers that make the viewer drool with lust). My contributions include descriptions of Hakim Stout and Meta, both from Ethiopia, and iJuba sorghum beer from South Africa.

The book was compiled and edited by Adrian Tierney-Jones who, based on the editing he did on my reviews, is an excellent writer. His awards back up the claim. He is also the editor of the Brewer’s Herald, author of The Big Book of Beer, and blogger at maltworms.blogspot.com.

    Last night at a neighborhood homebrew and craft brew beer appreciation meeting (amongst the 24″ of falling snow), we played a kind of morbid game: What beer style would you pick if you could only have one?

    Let’s forget that many wouldn’t want to restrict themselves from the epicurean adventure of beer exploration, but if you had to choose something to sustain you throughout the year what would it be?

    The answer might be your favorite style or maybe one that had a more universal/multi-seasonal appeal.

    I was surprised at some friends’ answers. I pegged a few for IPA and brown ales, but was delighted(?) when they picked my favorite: Tripel.
    Others on the list were IPA and Heffeweisen.

    (PS. The response could have been related to having just been treated to taste test my friend’s “Tripel: three ways”. All one homebrewed wort but with split up into three variations with 3 different yeasts: White Labs 500 (Chimmay), 530 and 575. I like 530 the best.)
