Brew52.com, a new website described as “an online beer tasting festival” caught my attention yesterday after Jeff sent me the link and Rett followed-up with a message on MySpace. Aside from the nice design, what really separates this site from your typical beer review sites is the fact that they’re keeping it local:
Minnesota has a ton of great breweries and participants of Brew52 will sample many of them during the 52 weeks of 2008. In addition to sampling beer in the comfort of their homes, participants meet up for the occasional beer-sampling at local brew pubs. These events will be announced in the upcoming weeks and anyone is welcome to join.
This sounds like fun… another local alternative to at least some facets of BeerAdvocate and RateBeer.
