Streamline your Journey into the World of Beer5
The Beer Journal, designed and written by Chris Wright of Monument, Colorado, USA, has been engineered as a well-thought-out tool for your streamlined journey into the world of craft beer. With the blessing of the Beer Judge Certification Program, he has printed the BJCP 2004 Style Guidelines in a concise format for easy reference while you are enjoying each beer style. He discusses glassware, pouring, festivals, cellaring, serving temperatures, brewery tours, and beer & food pairings in elementary terms, while providing pages for your own "captain's log" along the way. More than 80 pages are provided for beer entries. He also provides organized pages for chronicles of your knowledge sources (websites and books that YOU find are personally helpful), festivals attended, and tours at breweries throughout the country or the world. When you are ready to create your own personal beer cellar, you can use the log provided to keep track of your vintage beers, as well as the differences in flavor as you uncork them over the years.

If attending beer festivals opens your eyes to the wonders of beer, The Beer Journal will supplement your excitement. When you read your entries even two weeks later, you will be amazed at your own insightful comments. Anyone who is used to the joys of gourmet spices while cooking will find echoes of these aromatic flavors in the beer they drink. It is fun to note them and to discover your own ability to analyze beer, while enjoying the moment. With The Beer Journal, you will have a documented log of those that titillate, those that infuriate, and those that seem unfamiliar. As your experience increases, you may revisit the ones you have spurned, finding them to be more satisfying as your own personal growth expands.

Chris Wright hit it "on the mark" with this eye-opener. Of course, if you just want to drink cold lawnmower beer that has no variety, you will have little need for this little gem. The Beer Journal is the insightful result of the realization that the average-Joe had no resource to help him keep track of what he has experienced in the world of beer. It is a supportive tool that will educate you easily and serve as a highly personal document as you broaden your horizons in the world of beer.

Great with The Beer Book5
I bought this for my boyfriend in conjunction with The Beer Book. He loved them! This has special spots to take tasting notes in addition to tips provided on what glass to drink what type of beer out of.
