A Good Beer Blog


Have you read The Unbearable Nonsense of Craft Beer - A Rant in Nine Acts by Alan and Max yet? It's out on Kindle as well as Lulu.

Maureen Ogle said this about the book: "... immensely readable, sometimes slightly surreal rumination on beer in general and craft beer in particular. Funny, witty, but most important: Smart. The beer geeks will likely get all cranky about it, but Alan and Max are the masters of cranky..."

Ron Pattinson said: "I'm in a rather odd situation. Because I appear in the book. A fictional version of me. It's a weird feeling."

Alan -

Did I have an effect:<blockquote class="smalltext">On November 23, 2004, the Government of Canada launched a month-long public consultation process with Canadians on possible trade retaliation against the United States. Over 800 submissions were received from a wide range of stakeholders. On March 31, 2005, the Government of Canada announced that it would retaliate against the United States by applying a 15 percent surtax on Canadian imports of U.S. live swine, cigarettes, oysters and certain specialty fish (e.g. ornamental fish, frozen tilapia or monkfish). These retaliatory duties will take effect on May 1, 2005, following approval of the necessary Orders in Council.</blockquote>At least I was "a stakeholder" for the day. The lads over at <i>A Good Frozen Tilapia Blog</i> are some pissed, though. Here is the news release.
