In keeping with the alcohol theme, I decided to review another blog that deals with alcohol. In the midst of my searches to find the blog that “felt right,” I found Stories From the Pub, a beer and spirits review site that sometimes tells of the adventures in finding new beers or spirits.
The blog is written by one gentleman who, after trying hundreds of different types of beers and spirits, rates alcohol in the fashion of The Beer Advocate. He is whisky and beer orientated but does not stop just there. With over 100 posts, you can find great descriptions of most types of beers, whiskeys and other types of spirits.
He uses a scale starting at zero to “fucking excellent.” He differentiates the scales depending on whether it is whisky (1-100 scale) or other spirits or beers (1-6 scale).
His site is easy to use. He has a link to the list of all the alcohol he has rated for easy navigation. Instead of the entire post being presented on the main page, he uses an excerpt to describe the alcohol with a picture so the reader can click “continue reading” if they are interested in learning more.
The guy is “just a guy with dreams of opening a brewpub one day.” If you would like to get a more personal suggestion or rating of an obscure beer or whiskey, this may be the place to go.
