The Beeriodic Table of Elements

While bottling a batch of my UBN Big Dipper Belgian-style double IPA (UBN BDIPA) last weekend at Barleycorn’s Craft Brew in Natick, Mass., I spotted this amusing “Beeriodic Table” poster. It’s a beery take on the scientific Periodic Table of Elements.

The Beeriodic Table

From Beeriodic.com, where you can purchase your own Beeriodic Table post for $11.50 (plus shipping):

“This authentic marriage of general chemistry and zymurgy (brewing) is intended to be delightfully entertaining. Even if you aren’t a science or beer drinking type, you might still find the poster intriguing. It serves as a classy addition to most any wall, and it could quite possibly be the perfect gift idea!

“Each of the 112 blocks comprising the poster showcases the ‘science’ (elemental information) along with the ‘suds’ (a beer’s information) by pairing a specific beer to a specific element.”

A Beeriodic Table poster could make a nice addition to man cave, barroom or other drinking spot. Something tells me my girl wouldn’t appreciate it if purchased one and hung it in our tiny apartment though.

Hoppiness is…

Happiness may be a warm gun, but hoppiness is a warm brew kettle anxiously awaiting a healthy dose of dank hops. I spent yesterday afternoon at a local craft brew shop called Barleycorn’s brewing up my own special batch of Belgian-style double IPA. My favorite part of the process was smelling and liberally applying a variety of hops through the boil. Love me some hops.
