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 off topic but wanted to show you this story about a man who was chugging from a device powered by an electric drill who ruptured his stomach - only in Australia!

Alan -

Now I know never to do that.

Next off topic question
Can I get Fullers London pride in Canada?

3rd question
Would having an "Ask Alan" section be helpful?

Alan -

All this is <i>is</i> an "Ask Alan"!<p>Yes, Virginia. At the LCBO. Next time you are in Ontario fly a suitcase full back. See my review from last summer on this post. Scroll down.

I used to live within walking distance of Fullers Brewery in Chiswick - like living at the foot of Mount Olympus - oh the memories!

Malty goodness. Were there any of the straight from the vat pubs like the ones in Dublin (and one I have been in in London) near the Guinness breweries?
