Christopher Kelly commented on Ben's group Beer Appreciation Society
"Definitely a fan of good tasting beer! I like the darker stouts and such, but I've been trying a lot of my local breweries and been pretty impressed. Lagunitas is one I can recommend."

Zan Perron - Ars Amorata philosophy

This group looks like it's more or less dead but I might as well post this here.
