It can be hard to remember all the nuances of the beers we drink — which is why they make the Moleskine Beer Journal ($20). Featuring the same black cover the company is known for, this specialty book offers 240 pre-formatted pages in which you can record tasting notes, log your homebrewing efforts, save recipes, and jot down details of your favorite brew-slinging haunts. Five themed sections, five blank tabbed sections, and 202 adhesive labels help you keep track of everything, while the embossing on the cover lets you tell it apart from your other notebooks.
Interested in trying out the aged cocktail craze for yourself? You don't need to travel to a fancy cocktail bar — although that's not a bad idea. You can do it yourself at home with the Barrel Aged Cocktail Kit ($13). This kit includes a 375ml bottle, instructions, and a honeycomb stave from one of four barrels to give your drink that distinctive oak flavor.
