Fresh Brews: Dentist Serves Beer, 1,000 Beers And More

I hope everyone had a great weekend, filled with lots of craft beer and grilled food. To make getting back to work a little easier, here’s some things to keep your mind off of the daily grind.

Brewpublic: Texan Dentist Serves Beer to Patients
If you’re in the Dallas area, you have to check out this dentist. First he takes the edge off, then he scrapes the plaque off, offering free beer and wine to his patients to help “ease nervous patients into the dentist’s chair.” This would make me want to go to the dentist a lot more often!

Beervana: Craft Beer: 5% Of Sales 60% Of Drinkers
Jeff points out that a new study shows that while only five percent of beer sold is craft beer, 60% of the population drinks craft beer. Based on my friends, I would say the number of craft beer drinkers is growing, but I had no idea it was that high.

Liquid Diet: One year, 1,000 beers.
I like to try a lot of different beers, but I have nothing on Forbes blogger David Ewalt who is attempting to taste 1,000 beers within the course of a single year. Now that sounds like my kind of research.

Brookston Beer Bulletin: Good News: Beer Doesn’t Kill Brain Cells
Jay shares a short piece that concludes beer doesn’t kill brain cells. Unfortunately, as he points out, the article comes from Maxium which isn’t exactly a scientific journal.

I'm a former coffee blogger, but I’ve been getting to know some really good craft beers and really getting into home brewing. I couldn’t resist starting this little project called Passion For The Pint. When I’m not blogging about coffee or beer, you can find me exploring New Orleans’ wide range of eateries, rooting for the New York Yankees (don’t hate me, I’m originally from New York), working out to burn off the beer calories or reading about beer.
