Sampler Pack: How to Be a Beer Nerd

• Bon Appétit provides this quick and easy recipe for becoming a beer nerd – don’t be afraid of foam; drinking beer that is ice cold hides its taste; don’t be afraid of bottled beers (though, honestly, the conversation is now about whether cans are better than draft or bottle), but, hey, it’s still a pretty good article. Well, it’s about beer and I read it. [Bon Appétit]

• Having recently discovered wet hopped beers, I was really happy to stumble across Christian DeBenedetti’s newest Eater post about the history of wet hopped beers, which are also known as fresh-hopped beers. What are they you wonder? Read this thing and wonder no more! [Eater]

• What I love about the craft beer world is that it fosters collaboration. In this article at CraftBeer.com, Brittany Dern examines what happens when two brewers who love each other very much get together to make a beer. [CraftBeer.com]

• Sam Calagione and the other folks at Dogfish Head have been working with the Discovery Channel on a new program called Brew Masters. The show follows Calagione around the country as he tracks down exotic ingredients, brewing techniques, and escaped criminals. The show airs in November. [Dogfish Head]
