Random Wednesday

Outsourcing content today to Angelo De Ieso, who boldly offers his 50 must-try hoppy beers. I notice the locution suggests that they are must-try, not necessarily the best ... and yet he numbered them. Of course, the only reason for these lists is discussion, and Angelo's getting some. (My comment: more foreigns, please: Senne's Taras Boulba, Thornbridge Jaipur IPA, Saison Dupont, Van Eecke Poperings Hommel Bier, Belhaven Twisted Thistle, and so on.) Your list?

Also, I got an email from a PR firm alerting me to what may be the most unnecessary beer accessory ever created: the Krups BeerTender. It's a beer-dispensing devise made for the little mini-kegs Heineken sells. It sets you back $150 and does exactly what the little mini-kegs already do. So if you want to drop a bill and a half so you can serve exactly three different beers (Heineken, Heiney Light, and Newcastle Brown Ale) on a device you don't need, here's the link.
