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."

On PEI, we called it the "government dairy", the "Lick" or "the warm beer store". Times have changed. They now sell cold beer, wine and coolers. and the main store sells bottle-your-own tanker wine that is quite palatable. If you are looking for a decent beer, though, you have to go elsewhere. The Gahan House brewery, behind the Queen St. "Lick" sells a decent variety of brewed-on-site beer. I recommend the Sydney Street Stout.

As per the Sloan song, we always called it "the L.C." in Halifax (as in 'Nova Scotia Liquor Commission'; although now I see it's corporation, maybe it was 'corporation' back then as well).

You are spot on with that Sydney Street Stout, Derek - that was my favorite. And PEI makes up for itself with the excellent moonshine which appears magically in every kitchen cabinet out near my old home in Rustico.
