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."

I just have to put a reply up. Empty active conversations look so sad. I may move comments over from the mother blog but maybe not.

Great idea for a site. And in one day you've already got more content than my blog. Rumors have it that some of the silverorange designers are excited about the possibilties of a beer-themed design... something with a bubbly top.

I have begun the beer related visuals education program. The difference between a rocky head and a dishwater head is not to be underestimated.

Interesting stuff. Zywiec and Okocim are available at most large LCBO outlets. The others don't seem to be. Zywiec is a good summer beer and I found the label trick to be rather neat. If you're not familiar, here's how it works. There is a place on the bottle that is blank when the beer is warm. When the beer gets cold enough, the Zywiec logo becomes visible. Interesting stuff in the article about the local beers in Syracuse..though that is mostly academic for me since none of that is likely to make it up here.
