I Like Beer! ..... What Now?

Author: Damian Morano

As part of our ongoing commitment to supporting your beer awareness, knowledge and expertise, the following syllabus and related links provide you with a comprehensive guide (to date) to the delightful nectar known as beer and the beer drinking experience. The guide is segmented using the broad categories of Beer Basics and Beer Appreciation.

While we are familiar with several resources to which we would feel comfortable directing you, we believe that Beer Advocate best supports and enhances the information we wish to provide for your better understanding and engagement of the wonderful world of beer. Furthermore, their passion and commitment most closely resemble that of The Party Source, as well as our core mission – to be The Source of solutions for our customers’ good living.
