No single website or blog can cover the explosive craft beer scene in Kentucky and Southern Indiana (see how I didn’t use the term “Kentuckiana”?). That’s why LouisvilleBeer has gathered the RSS feeds of the best local beer news sites & blogs and put them in one central location. Maybe we’ll introduce our readers to yet another good source. Thanks to all who are part of this. Let’s keep Kentuckiana (D’oh!) beered!

"Think Globally, Drink Locally -- Indiana Beer."
Where beer geeks get offended. Welcome to the world of beer as viewed by the founder of the New Albanian Brewing Company in New Albany, Indiana, who reminds you that beer is far too important to be left to Rate Advocate.

There’s such a cynicism about the phrase ‘I laughed all the way to the bank.’ It’s as though mo...
These requests from abroad, Vol. 9: "I am a big collector of beermats, coasters and other promotional items of beer brands."
If you own or work for a brewery, you've probably fielded numerous e-mail inquiries from overseas asking for beer labels, crown caps and the like, as destined to become the cherished keepsakes of p...

Professor Glynis Ridley speaks on the daring first woman to circumnavigate the globe at Locust Grove [Books]
The 21st century is alive with scurrying, jet-setters of all breeds. If copies of SkyMall are to be trusted as an accurate litmus test, wayfaring travelers of the modern age are a diverse bunch of intrepids, ranging in myriad tastes, backgrounds and motivations. The modern journeyman can snooze easily through 10,000 miles with minimal fear of pirates, scurvy or the clap. Minimal. But our casual (dare I say blasé?) relationship with world-traversing voyages is yet another extremely recent development thanks to human ingenuity (a.k.a innovations for the sake of being as lazy – excuse me, “efficient” – as possible). It was not long ago that a zealous traveler needed cutlass, courage and male parts to conquer the globe.
Enter Jeanne Baret. Sporting a sailor’s disguise, with an attitude to match, Frenchwoman Jeanne Baret would become the first woman to circumnavigate the globe in 1766, joining a list of real life wonder women kicking-ass in a haze of testosterone. Join University of Louisville professor Glynis Ridley as she discusses the life and discovery of this remarkable sailoress at Historic Locust Grove’s Afternoon Lecture Series this Wednesday, June 6th, at 1pm.
Based on her 2010 release, the book The Discovery of Jeanne Baret, Dr. Glynis Ridley’s presentation will explore the 18th Century voyage that would place Baret on the map – literally. Posing in disguise as a man, Jeanne Baret joined Bougainville’s expedition and found her place working as an assistant to the mission’s botanist. Completing a journey both dangerous and daring, Ridley will tell Jeanne’s story, discuss her book and explain the process of reconstructing what really happened on the voyage.
Admission to the Afternoon Lecture Series is $3 for Friends of Historic Locust Grove and $5 for the rest of us. Delectables in the form of dessert and coffee will kick off the discussion at 1pm, with Dr. Ridley’s presentation beginning following the nibbles at 1:15pm. Been a while since you braved the seven seas? Make the journey to Locust Grove this week and marvel at the badass-ery of one of history’s most intrepid travelers – and all without a single SkyMall.
Historic Locust Grove is located on 561 Blankenbaker Lane.

Hoosier Beer Geek: A Beer Blog for Indiana, from Indianapolis
Hoosier Beer Geek was established in 2006 as an excuse for "The Knights of the Beer Roundtable" to drink and rate beer. Since then we've become a bigger part of the Indiana brewery community, with experience organizing all three of the Brewers of Indiana Guild's major events: Winterfest, Indiana Microbrewers Festival, and Bloomington Craft Beer Fest. Our goal is to make the site a valuable asset to all fans of better beer in Indiana.
