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."

McAuslan's St-Ambrose is my long time favorite in Quebec. When I returned to Beijing, I brought with me a few samples of their Vintage Ale Millésimée 2001 (Extra Strong Ale, 9.6%). I keep them preciously.

For whatever reason since the spring has started to make an appearance, it has been Fuller's London Porter time around my house. Maybe its just because the LCBO has put so many on the shelf to fill up the fact that they have likely moved to new releases every four months instead of three. I missed my St. Patrick's Day Rouge dry stout, a usually stocked item in March. They still have a heck of a lot of the Christmas specials floating around. Here is hoping for some sales in the barleywines, tripples and quadruples to box and hide away for a decade or so.
