TAPS Media Update

The folks over at TAPS Media have been busy cranking out a number of new video podcasts for you to enjoy over the holiday season. The three podcast's include interviews with Bob Baxter of the Yukon Brewing Company, a behind the scenes glimpse into the Canadian Brewing Awards Judging, highlights of the CBA gala and a snapshot of the University of Toronto's Hart House Summer BBQ and Craft Beer event.

The video's are free to view. Simply go to iTunes and subscribe to TAPS magazine and load the video's when prompted. Or, head over to and download each video separately. Whether sitting at work, riding the subway or while enjoying a seasonal beer, the video's make for great time killers and provide some useful information along the way.

Also, the newest (winter) issue of TAPS: Canada's Beer Magazine is set to hit store shelves any day now as the magazine was released from the printers yesterday. My articles include an interview with Brooklyn brewery's colourful brewmaster Garrett Oliver, a profile of the Publican House - Peterborough's newest brewery, a book review on Notes on a Beermat: Drinking and Why It's Necessary, provided some last minute gift ideas and reviewed two fine Ontario beers (you'll have to read the magazine to find out which ones). The rest of the team put together some great articles and everything wrapped up very nicely.

Speaking of last minute Christmas gift ideas, a new copy of TAPS would make any true beer lover smile upon reaching into their stocking on Christmas day. Better yet, a one or two year subscription. Check out the website for more details on how to subscribe to Canada's only beer magazine. One year - 4 issues: $23 or Two years - 8 issues $40. Pub/bar owners - 10 copies 4 times a year: $159.
