If you are a reader of Zymurgy and/or member of the American Homebrewers Association, you may have found my website from the link in my recent article (“Homebrew for Dinosaurs,” September/October 2016 issue). Thank you for stopping by!
It was a real privilege to share some of my experiences as a homebrewing paleontologist with a broader audience. Of course, there wasn’t nearly enough room to talk about everything I wanted to discuss, and who wants to read 15 pages of my navel-gazing, anyhow? Here, I have included a few links for the curious that expand on some of the things I touched on in the article.
- Want to learn more about Aquilops, the dinosaur that inspired “Eagle Face Oatmeal Stout”? Check out its Wikipedia page, or read the original technical publication. You can even download files to 3D print your own Eagle Face!
- I made a beer for Aquilops; my buddy Matt got a tattoo. Read that story at Matt’s blog post here.
- The artistic rendering of the animal that you saw in Zymurgy was done by the incredibly talented Brian Engh. Check out his website and be amazed!
- Want the recipe for my Eagle Face Oatmeal Stout? I’ve got it here! Other recipes mentioned in the article include Thumbspike Saison and The Celtic Elk Stout.
- Interested in one of my favorite connections between brewing and paleontology? Read this post on a real Jurassic beer.
- My homebrew club is Horse Thief Brewers Association, based in San Dimas. If you are in the area, join us for a meeting sometime!
- If you want some of the highlights from this website, check out my “Classic Posts,” “About Me,” and “Recipe Favorites” pages.
- If you are into the Twitter thing, check out my feed @andyfarke for the latest on paleontology, homebrewing, and other things that interest me.
- Finally, a shout-out to fellow paleontologist Gabe Santos for the awesome photo of me (with Smilodon skull and stout) that is in the article. Thanks, Gabe!
