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."

The stout sounds familiar to an experience I had yesterday at Nodding Head. I didn't have anything with me to take notes, so I can't review it, but something wasn't right. I finished it, then walked up the street to Ludwig's Garten.

Alan -

We like anecdotes and recollections around here, Joe. <p>What is Ludwig's Garten?

A German-inspired pub in Philadelphia. They don't brew themselves, but do have a selection of German beers, as well as a few other continental European beers.

Hmmm - I sense a call for a review of the pubs of Philli. I am working on a US army mess hall review and Mike is going to look at the micros of Halifax.

Joe Reed -

It would be awful, but I think I'd survive.

Finally - the IPA and the porter. I am done this one. No variety pack should have six styles. Never. Too much. Edit yourself.

Slurped some 9 man ale yesterday. I should have written this then looked at your review. I tried it without any pre-knowledge and liked it a good bit. It was a light, hopsy, summery sort of wheat ale type pale ale. Which is what you say up there. I can't imagine anything better to sip cold all summer, a great brew.

Get the porter and the brown. Like them a lot.
