Beer Up

There are two types of beer drinkers in this world--those who believe they know everything they need to know about beer, and those who believe they'll never know enough. If you find yourself in the latter group, this kit will help you on your way to discovering the nuances of artisan beers, from lagers and ales to porters and stouts. Tasting profiles from the 48-page booklet break beers down into style categories and include information on each variety's background, flavors, aromas, and unique character.

Brew up a good time by hosting blind taste tests with a few astute snack pairings and a group of your fellow budding connoisseurs. Cover up to 18 bottles, cans or pints with the paper sleeves and record tasting notes in the 4 tasting notepads. When you arm yourselves with the book's quick-reference guide and lexicon, you'll be able to detect and describe every draught's subtlest notes--discern pints rich with smoky, astringent, tart and toffee flavors, to sips with a sharp, metal or skunky smack. For anyone harboring an avid interest in this centuries old beverage, this kit will have you tasting and evaluating everything from abbey ales to wheat beers like the brewers who made them. Written by beer blogger and Portland native Jeff Alworth. Made in China.

Comments about BEER TASTING TOOL KIT:

We used this product for an IPA-tasting party, and it was great! We used the bags to cover the beer, and got clipboards for the tasting notes. The booklet was informative with fun facts and history about different kinds of beer, and we'll be able to use the kit over and over for different tasting parties. We only wish the bags were made of Tyvek so that we could reuse them, but we'll get some brown lunch bags for that :)

      My husband brews his own beer and is always trying to get people's honest opinion so he can make the next batch better and better. This is a great way to get feedback on his beer and save the comments to look at later.

        Comments about BEER TASTING TOOL KIT:

        We had a fantastic time on Christmas doing a beer tasting with this new kit. I didn't use the bags and string that come with the kit (they're nicely designed and you're going to want some way to conceal what you're pouring, but were a little unnecessary in my case). The tasting notepads themselves were great, and we had a fun time comparing notes afterwards. I was worried that we would need to read the whole guide beforehand, but the quick-reference card was really all we needed to get started. Then, after the tasting when we had more questions we could look through the guide to get answers. A great little set!

        We agreed to get gifts for the holidays that cost $20 or less. My husband is a beer afficionado however, he complains he doesnt know how to "describe" beer and its different tastes, elements, etc. I think this will be a fun and creative way to help him! Im super excited for him to open and begin using it

                  I bought this for my husband as a Fathers's Day gift. He absolutely loved the idea of having a beer tasting party with his friends. New to home brewing, this seemed like a great way to enjoy his new hobby.

                  The kit is well made, hip, and everything the description said. The beer guide is pretty handy.

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  Prompt delivery. Excellent service.
