A must for any serious beer drinker.

My problem is that I desire to try new beers and try so many that I never can recall if I have tried a beer or if I have did I like it.

The binding and pages are book quality with glossy pages.

As a lover of high quality craft beer, I was excited to buy The Beer Journal a few months back. It is at once a handy reference guide, a somewhat instructional book, and a way to keep track of new discoveries and experiences in the world of craft beer. The Beer Journal starts with a summary of brewing basics and includes a small glossary of related terms. Next comes a reference guide of about two dozen major beer styles, plus subcategories, each with a text description of the style (some of which could have been better written) and some "technical" characteristics such as SRM, IBU's and ABV. Also included is a Standard Reference Model chart for gauging the color of different beers.

After all the introductory stuff, we get to the heart of the Journal, which is about 90 pages to enter details, notes and other useful information about beers that the reader personally samples. At the beginning of this section is a checklist of all the different styles presented above so you can add page cross-references to your journal entries. After the main journal portion, there is a shorter section for beer festivals, and some tidbits on food pairings and glassware. Overall this is an extremely handy reference and a fun way to keep track of my beer tasting experiences. I use it in conjunction with "1001 Beers You Must Taste Before You Die", which is also a highly recommended title.

UPDATE 8/25/11: I have nearly filled up my 90 available pages for beer ratings, which means two things. First, I'm getting ready to order another of these fine journals. And second, I drink way too much beer (and I have the gut to prove it).

UPDATE 11/17/12: Journal number 2 is nearly full, time to order a third copy. Absolutely loving this little book.

Format: Paperback
The Beer Journal, designed and written by Chris Wright of Monument, Colorado, USA, has been engineered as a well-thought-out tool for your streamlined journey into the world of craft beer. With the blessing of the Beer Judge Certification Program, he has printed the BJCP 2004 Style Guidelines in a concise format for easy reference while you are enjoying each beer style. He discusses glassware, pouring, festivals, cellaring, serving temperatures, brewery tours, and beer & food pairings in elementary terms, while providing pages for your own "captain's log" along the way. More than 80 pages are provided for beer entries. He also provides organized pages for chronicles of your knowledge sources (websites and books that YOU find are personally helpful), festivals attended, and tours at breweries throughout the country or the world. When you are ready to create your own personal beer cellar, you can use the log provided to keep track of your vintage beers, as well as the differences in flavor as you uncork them over the years.

If attending beer festivals opens your eyes to the wonders of beer, The Beer Journal will supplement your excitement. When you read your entries even two weeks later, you will be amazed at your own insightful comments. Anyone who is used to the joys of gourmet spices while cooking will find echoes of these aromatic flavors in the beer they drink. It is fun to note them and to discover your own ability to analyze beer, while enjoying the moment. With The Beer Journal, you will have a documented log of those that titillate, those that infuriate, and those that seem unfamiliar. As your experience increases, you may revisit the ones you have spurned, finding them to be more satisfying as your own personal growth expands.

I love beer and consider it my hobby. My problem is that I desire to try new beers and try so many that I never can recall if I have tried a beer or if I have did I like it. This is where the beer journal comes in handy, it allows me to make an entry with the name, score, where tried, purchased from and tasting notes. The section I use the most is beers from festivals. The about the size of a paperbook but narrower and fits perfectly into my wife's purse.

If you are a real fan of beer this journal is essential it will really help you keep all the beers you have tried organized. I am up to my 3rd journal.

Purchased as a companion gift to a beer-of-the-month club gift for someone. The journal appears better in quality than I expected. It has a nice hard cover and glossy pages explaining various beer characteristics. It left plenty of pages for individual beer reviews.

This is a good gift for a novice or a (wannabe) pro beer drinker. The journal is not as gimmicky as some others out there, and is far ore substantial. Anyone who has gone to a beer festival or a tasting tour would be able to put this to good use.

We are new to brewing. Thought this would be a good way to keep notes. Seems more like a book than a journal, there is more stuff printed in it than places to write.

Wish it had a little more details or spots to add beers; lots of information about beer in the beginning which I wasn't looking for

I bought this for my boyfriend in conjunction with The Beer Book. He loved them! This has special spots to take tasting notes in addition to tips provided on what glass to drink what type of beer out of.
