    One Reply to “Philosophy on Tap: Pint-Sized Puzzles for the Pub Philosopher”

    1. This book spurred some great conversations and, enjoyed slowly, kept us thinking for over a year. Though not a beer drinker, myself, I had fun going out to search for the beers featured in each essay for my fellow philosophers. I would describe the book less as puzzles, and more like an introduction to an issue or conundrum. Then there are some guided discussion questions after each little philosophy essay, and that's where the real fun was had.

    2. One of my friends who is taking Philosophy modules as her electives got me interested in the subject. I borrowed this book from the library and she got all jealous when she saw it. Philosophy and beer, seriously, what's not to like?
