Most beer magazines focus on reviews, homebrew tips, and industry news. While that’s fine, it misses beer’s most cherished skill—bringing people together. Pallet is a new magazine from Sam Calagione, of Dogfish Head fame, that’s focused on beer and storytelling. Think less about the scarcity of Bourbon County Stout Rare, and more about the tale you might tell if you drank a bottle. After flipping through the first issue, we can safely say this is the only beer magazine we’ve ever read with stories on Dolly Parton, Pliny the Elder (the person), and Zambian rock music. So, crack a 90 Minute IPA, read Pallet, and share your new knowledge next time you’re out drinking with friends.
