The multi-talented, Dallas-based writer, comedian and musician Jason Hensel curates a wonderful tumblr called Book and Beer. The blogs asks two simple questions: What book are you reading ? and What beer are you drinking? . If you want to participate, just submit a photo that answers the questions. It’s a fun project, but be prepared to get thirsty.

My, we’ve long had pairings of food and wine. But now books and brew. Do we match nationalities or regions? Jonathan Lethem with Brooklyn Lager, for instance?
I do have a novel coming out in a few months that has a very local (and fictional) beer brand running through the ensuing scenes. Maybe I should get busy with the photos.
