THE SESSIONS #138 BEER BLOGGING FRIDAY The Session, a.k.a. Beer Blogging Friday, is an opportunity once a month for beer bloggers from around the world to get together and write from their own unique perspective on a single topic. Each month, a different beer blogger hosts the Session, chooses a topic and creates a round-up listing all of the participants, along with a short pithy critique of each entry.
The founders of the event, Jay Brooks and Stan Hieronymous, state that it is “an opportunity once a month for beer bloggers from around the world to get together and write from their own unique perspective on a single topic.”
Deep Beer hosted The Session #138 Beer Blogging Friday for August 2018.
This Session's Topic
Wood has been used for millennia to store, transport and flavor beer, wine and spirits. Today, the relationship between wood and beer has regained its popularity with brewers and drinkers as observed in the prevalence of bourbon-barrel-aged beer and sours. This topic is deep and wide and meandering, romantic and historic, personal and professional.
The Round Up
I want to thank all of this month's contributors. I always enjoy reading posts to the monthly Session, for one, I expand my knowledge about beer and two, I am exposed to differing perspectives and writing style and thus, become a better writer because of that.
Derrick Peterman writes Ramblings of a Beer Runner. Derrick's entry was The Personality of Wooden Barrels. Derrick is a Silicon Valley tech geek. To him, "Beer is a subject rich with culture, economics, science and history in addition to being mighty tasty. Sometimes I dive into those subjects. Other times, I just ramble on about beers or breweries I like."
