Beer Advocate goodness

I've been a fan of Michael Jackson, the Beer Hunter, for a number of years. His encyclopedic knowledge of beers and whiskeys has helped to more fully enjoy those beverages and explore new choices.

So when I saw the October issue of Beer Advocate I had to order it (you can order individual issues through the web site). The portrait on the cover is very much an iconic image of Jackson, so I thought it'd be cool to have. I had never read the magazine before, and turns out it's very well written with a lot of interesting stories about beer, brewing, beer history and beer reviews.

An unexpected bonus accompanied my issue -- a thin neoprene beer sock with rubber non-slip bottom! Very cool.

Glad to see you are enjoying the world of BA. I'm feeling sad that my BA calendar is almost out of days for this year. I don't know if they will give founding subscribers calendars every year or not. Although, I did get free glasses from Sam Adams for being a subscriber, that was coolish. Although I still haven't bought any sam adams to put in them. I've tried many other beers in those glasses though... Freebies rock! Beer freebies even moreso. I mean, no comment.
