I think it’s the right time for a return to everyone’s favorite Friday blog feature — TTBFBFBF! (That’s The Thirsty Beagle Facebook Free Book Friday, for the uninitiated.)
Today’s offering is “World’s Best Beers: One Thousand Craft Brews from Cask to Glass” by Ben McFarland.
This 288-page, large-size hardcover would make a great coffee-table book. In fact, I almost don’t want to give it away. It has some great beer photography and profiles beers and breweries around the world. It touches on ingredients and brewing techniques, correct glassware, pouring, beer evaluation and beer styles. It’s a really fun book, and it retails for $29.95 (or $38.95 in Canada).
But of course you don’t have to pay for it. You can win it for free by liking the Facebook post associated with this blog post. I’ll select the winner by random drawing at roughly 5 p.m. today.
-Republic Gastropub is having a Beer Social on Tuesday that will be headlined by Choc Beer Co. President Zach Prichard. The patio event will feature a special Choc flight and appetizers. The cost is $20 and seats are extremely limited. Call 286-4577 for availability.
-Label/can art for COOP Ale Works F5 IPA is making the rounds. I’ve heard you can expect to see these on shelves in late summer to early fall.
Have a great weekend!
