They say necessity is the mother of invention, but alcohol helps, too. Born from attending a few too many beer festivals, 33 Beers is a beer journal that provides an easy way to record tasting notes in a small, convenient notebook format. It’s designed for beer geeks, by beer geeks. The author of 33 Beers is this week’s guest on Fuhmentaboudit! and he describes the tasting process that went into the making of this book! Amanda Mayer of SingleCut Beersmiths is also in the studio – and together the group chats about tasting notes, beer varieties and drinking memory! This program was sponsored by Fairway Market.

“It’s beer – it should be fun – you should enjoy it with other people. It’s not a competition. If you don’t taste bitter chocolate from the roasted barley – that’s ok, you’re not a horrible beer drinker!” [29:00]
