A frosty beer, unlike a frosty stare, imbues recipients with number-obtaining confidence and a warm glow in the pit of the belly. Bask in refined radiance with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a two-year subscription to The Beer Connoisseur magazine (up to a $40.66 value). Published quarterly, The Beer Connoisseur is a Georgia-centric resource that writes about beer in a sophisticated, in-depth manner on par with wine or fine-dining periodicals. Browse articles focusing on culture, prominent brewing personalities, and more, ideal for expanding hoppy horizons or granting the ability to turn up one's nose in a drink debate and balance erudition on it. Past page turners have profiled new Georgian breweries and described the rise of craft brewing. The two-year subscription also includes two years on The Beer Connoisseur online, giving perusers access to a comprehensive beer-learning center and the ability to unlock arcane knowledge on cooking with beer and achieving the most harmonious food-and-brew marriages. The Beer Connoisseur keeps customers informed of beer tastings, beer dinners, beer festivals, and special events that are hosted by the magazine. Tax is included with the purchase of this Groupon.
- The beer and food section is probably the best of any beer magazine I've seen, with great recipe's [sic], great photography, and really utilizes either beer (something more than Guinness or pilsner that many other beer magazines use) in the recipe or as pairings with the food. – Barley Vine
- The Beer Connoisseur Magazine shakes up old-school marketing and shakes out beer misconceptions while exhorting, "Bottoms up!" – Noreen Burns, Patch
