Our 100th Post and a New Page

20 04 2010

Crack open the bubbly (beer of course!) as today we post our 100th entry at The Thinking Person’s Beer. The past five months has been a lot of fun and we have been making some posts that we are really proud of. To celebrate, we have made a “non-required reading” page in the tool bar with some of our most popular and favorite posts. You can read its contents here today.

Below is a list of some of our most popular and best posts.

In December of 2009, we prepared a series of posts called “A Decade of Beer Ads” where we found beer advertising on youtube.com and “hastily derived sociological statements about American Beer Culture through” what we found there. Some of the posts, including the 1990’s, remain our most popular posts.

Nearly every Tuesday, we have been preparing the Better Know Your Beer Style by describing a category of the Beer Judges Certification Program (BJCP) each week. We admit that the BJCP is not without flaws or controversy. But we believe it is important understand what the professionals believe a good and well put together beer looks and tastes like.

To this day, one of our most popular posts was called “Recession Time Drinks” where I convinced (some might even say “tricked”) my friends into drinking a bunch of really cheap beer in a blind tasting. We were surprised to see the outcome. You may be, too.

2010 was the 20th anniversary of The Simpsons to celebrate, we listed our top twenty favorite beer quotes from the show.

To Celebrate Women’s History Month and Ada Lovelace Day, we took a look at the long and productive history of women in brewing. Taking particular note of one of our favorite women scientists, Hildegaard of Bingen.

Last December, we visited the Yazoo Brewery in Nashville, Tennessee for a tour. The Brewery has now moved to a larger location in downtown Nashville. But you can read about our trip here.

As for the future of The Thinking Person’s Beer, we are going to be doing more tastings and more video blogs. We are working on another big “Tis the Season” post on wheat beers. And we will be reviewing some of our favorite spring and summer time beers. We are investigating corporate sponsorship as well as some more viral advertising on Twitter and Facebook. In the meantime, thank you for the continued support.

I like a twitter idea of people just ramdomly announcing what they are drinking. I would enjoy getting a tweet in the middle of a work day of “chocolate stout” or such. Keep up the good work. Drink on, Dude.
