Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I know what you mean about discovering that there's beer outside of lagers, as I'm from the US and we've got more generic lager than we can shake a stick at. Good thing there's craft & microbrews here to save us!
I'd suggest just trying out all the different beer you can, reading up on beeradvocate.com and other beer rating and review sites to get a general idea of what seems popular.
I wanted to throw out some buzzwords like stout and IPA, but I've found that once you descend into the world of better beer, those definitions break down and you really just have to drink the beer and let your tongue figure it out.
Don't drink much these days, But when I do it's Ale, preferably a good stout ale. Rogue Dead Guy Ale (U.S.) and Guinness Extra Stout comes to mind. Sheaf Stout, IIRC, is from "Down Under" and was pretty good as well. You might like some of the IPA's as well.
In the desert here where temps reach 120F. A good clean lager beer that does not leave any leftovers/slickness in your throat or mouth is best. I prefer Red Stripe beer because of this.
Quenching your thirst is what it is all about here in the desert. Not eating your beer. Most American Lagers are too after tasty and are not like drinking spring water. Red Stripe got it right though. Clean and Crisp is best in high heat conditions.
Being a life long beer drinking biker. I have pretty much drank them all.
Mostly, 'if it begins with 'B' and ends with 'r' then it's just a beer to me'. I'm open to most beers or ale to satisfy my thirst.
Dr's are limiting my intake for health reasons, so my nights out with the wife are when I imbibe in controlled manner. Occasionally a beer or ale at home whenever I want one.
I do enjoy tastings for local brew houses. Plus some friends are into home brewing. Man, some are really good while others should not be given to a 'horse' let alone a human. Nor even fit for 'pigs'. I will politely state, not my style, do you have a domestic.
Always wanted to brew my own, just too much on my plate now.
