Do You Know the Difference Between Kent Goldings and Saaz Hops?
Casual beer drinkers don’t seem to think to much about what they consume. This is in sharp contrast to beer connoissuers who not only discern the differences in flavor from one pale ale to the next, but also read fervently about beer and the business that produces it. If you’re one of these individuals who likes to discover different types of hops, learn about the aging process used by large brewers, discover how different strains of yeast cause beer to ferment one way or another, etc., then you will likely enjoy The Beer Connoisseur, a magazine for beer lovers who love to taste beer and love to learn about beer.
The Beer Connoisseur is a well- rounded magazine that covers industry news, beer culture, beer production, new products, and beer reviews. With this magazine, the beer lover can learn about different craft brewing operations and the individuals responsible for producing such memorable products. Readers can learn about pairing beer with food, brewing their own beer, travel excursions to beer festivals and famous breweries, and much more.
Education is an important component of The Beer Connoisseur. This publication wants to teach the reader a few things about beer and while the magazine is primarily aimed at those who appreciate the finer things that beer has to offer, novices can also enjoy this magazine and learn from its contents. The Beer Connoisseur wants its readers to come away from each issue with a better understanding about beer and its role in both business and life.
Published four times per year, The Beer Connoisseur is a good magazine for those who enjoy their beer and want to keep pace with industry changes, beer culture, new products, and more. Perhaps in the future, The Beer Connoisseur will be published more frequently, but until that time, four well- written and informative issues per year are all you get. It can get frustrating, but like a finely aged barleywine, you will find that each quarterly issue is greeted with enthusiastic anticipation. Pick up a copy and see for yourself.
