LAGERS Library

This part of the site contains details about various publications, books and magazines that are in the Lagers library or collection that is located at the BBC Taproom. This is just a small box or bookshelf at the BBC Taproom that contains this rather well worn collection of printed materials. these are also recommended reference materials that you can search the web for and don’t forget to ask other members what they are reading to help make great brew.

Our hope here is two-fold, 1) if you are at a meeting or the taproom you can ask to look through the box of materials and check something out (nothing fancy here just write your name on the sheet or form in the box) nd return it when you are done, and 2) this is the digital internet age you may have some luck doing an internet search on these publication or book titles and see what you get back; there may be a pdf of the publication, a web page equivalent or you might be able to buy the material if you are so inclined. Perform the obvious Google search and of course Amazon.com if you want to purchase the book.
