XKCD's take on Homeopathy

Smart and Funny is a great combination. XKCD is always both. If any of you didn't know about it before, Now You Do.

Being a Better Beer Snob

We've been on hiatus providing the BS for a while, but that's no reason to not talk about beer every now and again. I am currently taking a beer judging class from the BJCP, so I'm including a few useful resources here that I've found useful (or necessary) for the class.

The BJCP Style Guidelines go into great detail about the categories of beer that are used to judge competition entrants. These are the guidelines that a beer will be judged against, in addition to the technical merit of the brew. You can also find a beer scoresheet, which is nifty if you want to get really serious about comparing beers or if you are a homebrewer.

If any of you are interested in a nice Homebrewing 101, How to Brew is now available online for free!
