After asking my very patient girlfriend “Have we tried this beer before?” for the upteenth time a few weeks ago, I decided to finally bite the bullet and try one the “33 Beers” journals. I know there are apps out there that can do the same thing, but sometimes I like to keep it analog.

It’s small (it can fit in your back pocket or your girlfriend’s purse), the flavor wheel makes it easy to use and reference, and if you complete 3 journals, that’s 99 bottles of beer (which is cause for a song).
I’m hooked on Sixpoint Resin at the moment, so I haven’t had a chance to use the journal just yet; but I’m pretty psyched to try it out. You can pick one up at the 33beers.com online store, or at one of these retailers. And if wine is more your thing, they have a book for that too.
