Authors/writers, what do you consume that isn't Fantasy? [R]3 years, 1 month agolanceschaubert posted submission on Fantasy.

I think it was something from Douglas Adams or maybe Neil Gaiman, and they were talking about how they read a lot of non-fiction stuff, things like biology texts to keep their writing original and fresh. I've heard it said before that fantasy is really derivative, and I feel that's true of a lot of bad fantasy, and even some of the good stuff. Do you read things like books on insect anatomy to get ideas for creating different species, or is it an entirely more organic process, where you do the research required after sparking an idea as you're writing? Even other types of fiction if it stimulates.
Are there any "holy bibles" of brewing? [R]5 years, 5 months agodrummerinattic posted submission on brewing.

Hey guys. I'm new to this idea of brewing. I've done one kit batch of Lager and I'm currently doing my second kit batch of Canadian Blonde, a cooper's kit. I wanna get some real learning done about this to understand it better though. I'm the same with mead, and the guys over on /r/mead recommended I buy a book called The Compleat (I really don't understand why it's spelled like that though) Meadmaker by Ken Schramm. It's basically the go-to book for reference and recipes that can be altered. More or less the must-have of mead making.
Question is, is there a book like that for Beer? One you always go back to that taught you a hell of a lot that you could recommend?

We have this book in our brewery. We refer to it as "The Bible"
Sorry for Amazon link, it was the first thing to pop-up on google and I'm lazy: http://www.amazon.com/Oxford-Companion-Beer-Garrett-Oliver/dp/0195367138 Edit: I didn't read this well. If you're looking to learn how to brew, I recommend the Joy of Homebrewing. It's what I used.
I love the Chimay Trappist beers. Please recommend others that you think I'll like. [R]5 years, 7 months agobivendan posted submission on beer.

I started with Chimay Red, fell in love with it, and now all I drink is the White and Blue. Now I find that the Red isn't as tasty, the White is very fruity and enjoyable, and the Blue is incredibly easy to drink and delicious.
I've had Trappistes Rochefort 10. I can't say I care for it much at all.
Yesterday, I tried a bottle of St. Bernadus Abt 12. I thought it was okay but it lacked carbonation, which made it hard for me to love. It was a smooth and fruity 10% beer though.
I know this probably boils down to personal preference, but please let me know what you think I would enjoy next!

To make your search a bit easier, I want to mention that the style of beer that the Trappists brew is "Abbey Beer." Only several breweries are allowed to claim that they are part of the Trappists and their beer has a label that says it is a Trappist beer; however, many other breweries brew the style of beer brewed by Trappists (abbey beers).
Typically abbey beers have a designation of Singel, Dubel, Tripel, Quad which generally indicates strength and only dubel and tripel abbey beers are commonly found outside of Belgium. I highly recommend this book, it is where I learned this bit of information: The Oxford Companion to Beer

I've been looking to really learn more about that which I love but I don't know a good starting point. Any good suggestions?

I own and read this book very frequently:
A comprehensive breakdown of every brewing process, technique, and ingredient known at the time the book was written. Also includes detailed histories of many of the worlds oldest and most well known breweries.
