On Tuesday night I attended a release party for a new magazine and website called The Beer Connoisseur. This is a magazine and website for the epicurean beer drinker. The idea was the brainchild of a good friend’s neighbor that I have gotten to know recently. The Beer Connoisseur will have a national focus with regional editorial inserts. It will provide ratings of all kinds of brews, articles on upcoming releases and events, food pairings and educational tips for the upscale beer drinker. The launch party was held at the SweetWater Brewing Company and there was a great turnout. If you are a beer drinker, this is a magazine you need to subscribe to and/or a site you need to add to your favorites.
