A Textbook of Brewing - Jean De Clerk - 1 (20%) Standards of Brewing - Dr. Charles Bamforth- 1 (20%) A pub napkin or place mate - 3 (60%) I don't know how to read - 2 (40%)
We have two smart asses who say they can't read, so lets ignore those numbers.
One person has read De Clerk and Bamford. They must be a brewer? A serious brewer, but they have not read Daniels or Janson. This could mean they were Educated in brewing, but may not have ever home brewed?
Three people have at least read a pub napkin. I would hope everyone has read a pub napkin at least for the laugh!
Basically, no more than two people have read any books on beer evaluation and/or tasting. Leaving a possibility that only 40% of the bloggers have ever read anything on beer evaluation and/or style profiling.
