Writing about beer and culture

Sketchbook will use this space to share writing (from external brains as well as our own) that makes beer bigger than something you pour into a glass.  We believe beer is potent and delicious social glue that can create a common culture.  We think of making beer as an intellectual and thoughtful pursuit which connects our heads to our hearts to our hands, and to the soil around us. That's what we are trying to brew...and we are excited to share some words around that.

Look for articles here about beer and culture - ideas in food and agriculture - and more.

Rumi: "We have a huge barrel of beer, but no cups."

Beer has inspired lots of poetry over the years...we want to be part of that tradition! When we open this summer, Sketchbook plans to invite our customers to create their own Beer Epics on our Magnetic Poetry board.  Imagine tasting our latest recipe and playing with words at the same time! And knowing your instant classic might be posted on our blog.

In the mean time, we'll be using this space to occasionally post brilliant beer poems. Of course, Sketchbook Brewing Company does not formally endorse any behaviors described here...

The Tavern, by Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Rumi (1207-1273)
