Learn The Language of Beer

I’m a little late to the game on this one, but it was new to me, so I figured I’d share it with you as well in case you missed it too.

The ‘Learn The Language of Beer’ infographic (AKA ‘How to Talk Like a Beer Snob’) from Pimsleur Approach covers topics that include key terminology (hops, malt, yeast, etc.) 10 beers to order that aren’t Coors Light, and a couple of interesting facts.

Plus, their sources include the BJCP and Beer Advocate, with feedback from the Institute of Brewing and Distilling, The Foaming Head and the Brewers Association, so the information’s legit.

SAVOR Flowers Video

Another group dipping their toe into the waters of beer video production is the Brewers Association and CraftBeer.com, which just debuted this look into The Making of SAVOR Flowers, a beer from the creative minds of Jim Koch (Samuel Adams) and Sam Calagione (Dogfish Head).

Savor Flowers

The beer itself was brewed using rose water distilled at Dogfish Head, experimental hops, jasmine, hibiscus, lavender and honey. It was then aged in tanks with a special tincture that was made in Barrel One, the barrel that helped start the extreme brewing movement when it was used in the first aging of Sam Adams Tripple Bock.

According to Jim: “Sam and I had a great time gathering these ingredients, and I am excited to collaborate with such an innovative brewer on this beer for SAVOR. Sam’s originality and imagination are endless—he came up with the creative idea of distilling rosewater for this brew. We share the same intense passion for pushing the conventional definition of what beer can be and we put that same passion into our beers.”

And according to Sam: “Jim is the godfather of craft beer, and he’s got unbelievable ideas about what beer can be, along with the knowledge and palate to make those crazy beer dreams come true. I am with him on his philosophy and thrilled to be working together on this groundbreaking brew. We share a commitment to elevating beer to its proper infinite height, as both a beverage and a pairing for food.”
