A Good Beer Blog

Editorial Policy

1. Spelling

We received a blunt comment on the poor spelling around here and - have to admit - I really don't care that much but I do correct as I go along just as I will re-edit an past post if I feel like it.

This is really a blog about notes on beer and makes no effort to be "professional grade" and "world class". I live and die on the quality of my comments or the photography and not the placement of a comma. If that boils your brain, point out the error and I will correct - or you can find another place to read, perhaps your own well spelled blog.

2. Gifting

Beer related gifts and items for review and gladly accepted. I'm no fool. We have a panel of folk who gladly participate in the reviewing process. We are fair and impartial...and we like beer.

3. The Franklin Quotation.

We know he didn't write that:
If you search long enough, you'll find that perhaps some ingenious/desperate brewer lifted it from this 1779 letter Franklin sent to the Abbé André Morellet, which describes the joy not of beer, but of wine:
"We hear of the conversion of water into wine at the marriage in Cana as a miracle," Franklin wrote. "But this conversion is, through the goodness of God, made every day before our eyes. Behold the rain which descends from heaven upon our vineyards; there it enters the roots of the vines, to be changed into wine -- a constant proof that God loves us, and loves us to be happy."
But we don't care. He probably said it 576 times.

4. Copyright

While web 2.0 and Boing Boing style "mashing up" is a joke, I am pretty easy to get along with. If you want to use my photo or my text, ask and I likely will say that if fine if you give me a mention. But don't take one, stick it in your magazine pretending it's your own (even though the internet screams otherwise) and then not respond to my emails.
