Praises for The Beer Journal

Carolyn Smagalski, The Beer Fox, BellaOnline's Beer and Brewing Editor.
The Beer Journal - The Best in Personal Logbooks
"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. Chris Wright hit it “on the mark” with this little gem."
