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."

Big Gus -

This is the beer that inspired me to become a homebrewer. When I got back to the states and could not find it ANYWHERE, i realized that if I were to have ale that good I would have to make it myself. I have yet to try to make one like it though due partly to fading memory and partly to intemidation! This is a GREAT beer on cask, and a decent beer in a bottle. If you ever chance to find yourself in a pub in Scotland you must seek this one out!

That is interesting - and mirrors my past homebrewing motives. What were the particular ingredients that you thought would be required to replicate Deuchars?

One of the finest ales I've tasted and I'll echo the sentiments expressed by Big Gus - it's this type of beer that started to get me interested in the whole brewing process.
