Web Guide

Brian's Belly
Great beer site because it sets just that right tone. Crack open a beer and have some fun!

Online version of All About Beer Magazine. Comprehensive and useful.

Billed as the largest repository of beer information in the world. 

Strictly a brewpub, brewery and beer bar locator (more than 3,676 listings and 16,096 reviews). Just type in the city of your choice and PubCrawler will generate a list of places for you to visit. You can also read viewer reviews.

Another brewpub locator. It's slogan says it all: "A good beer is not hard to find, you just have to know where to look."

A beer of the month club. For $16.95 per month, a 12-pack of beer arrives at your doorstep. If you want to go through life fat, drunk and stupid, this is a good place to start.

For all you wannabes, this site professes to show you how to start up, own and operate your own brewpub. All you have to do is order the handy "how to" manuals for only $109 (or you can make three easy payments…). If you like this site, you'll probably find the Beer Across America site useful.
