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."

Great brews, Mike. What did they cost in Nova Scotia? We have these here at the LCBO but I have only tried the Black Wych once last year. I am fairly mad for the Fiddler's Elbow IPA by them.

Was by Port of Wines Saturday morning and picked them up, they only had these two available. I can't recall for sure, but I think it was $4.29 per.

I liked them - smooth and tasty.
