If you’re a beer geek, I’m sure you’ve found yourself scouring the web for beer reviews, homebrew tips, and beer-centric restaurants. Luckily, the bearded and/or goateed beer lovers of the world provide you with no shortage of information. This list is nowhere near comprehensive, but these are the beer sites I use regularly.
Favorite Beer Review Sites:
Beer Advocate: Treasure trove of beer-related information
Rate Beer: Another great review site featuring every beer under the sun.
The Vice Blog: Great site that offers a funny, insightful look at beer(among other things).
Top Homebrew Sites:
HomeBrewTalk.com: If you have a question about homebrewing, I’m sure it’s been answered here–no matter how beginner or advanced the issue.
Midwest Supply: When I lived in DC, did not own a car, and going to a homebrew shop was not an option, Midwest was my go-to online ale kit store.
Northern Brewer: Excellent online beer store and foum. Good advice and prices.
Wisconsin Beer Links:
Wisconsin Beer and Winery Finder: This is a fairly comprehensive listing of the state’s breweries and wineries, and there’s a map as well. If you have a smartphone, I highly recommend the excellent and free app, “Wisconsin Microbrewery Guide“.
Madison Beer Review: Well researched, thoughtful, and in-depth discussion of beer and the brewing industry in Wisconsin.
Pubfinder: I used to travel A LOT for work, and was often in search of a local brewpub or beer bar for dinner or a local brew. Pubfinder, which is hit or miss in all honesty, usually has a decent collection of beer-centric restaurants and pubs throughout the state(and nation).
