A Couple of Things Brewing at TAPS Magazine

Without sounding to much like an informerical, here is some news with regard to TAPS: Canada's Beer Magazine.

The owners of TAPS have recently announced some good news. Late last week, the popular beer magazine that covers everything from brewery profiles, to food and beer pairings, to beer reviews, and so much more, announced that you can now purchase a subscription no matter where you are in the world as the magazine will now be available for purchase on-line. Interested? Individuals can head over to Zinio Digital to purchase a yearly subscription for the low cost of $16, saving over 55% of the cover price. But if you go there right now, you can get save an additional 25% and pay only $12. A steal!

Also, in an effort to get to know their readers better, TAPS has created a 5 minute survey on their website, and each individual who participates has the chance to win $500 or one of 10 InstaKilts. It's not lengthy, you don't have to do much thinking, so why not give it a whirl. Did I mention that you could win $500?

For those of you on Facebook, type TAPS Magazine into the search field and check out the new site that has been created. You can join in on the discussion boards; like the one What I hate in a pub, or Favourite Canadian Pub and share your thoughts. Tell us what you think of the magazine, offer suggestions, tell us what you like, and keep in touch.

And you twitterers out there, TAPS has also created a Twitter account to share news as it happens.

We are working hard on the summer issue, which should hit newsstands come the middle of June, and it appears to be a beauty. I've got all the beers here that are being reviewed for the regular tasting panel, and their all tasting damn fine. Keep an eye out at your local magazine retail store for our next issue.
