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."

Hmmmm... with the trippy label art, and the "strong green herb" notes you mention, I wonder if it has hemp in it... "420" being the code for a certain illicit green smoking substance and all.

I wonder - I am too old or naive to know that code word but I have had a hemp ale called Sharp Angus from Halifax as well as the Kingston Brew Pub's version and that tell tale sweet herbal rusticity was not there in the 420 IPA.

Five down, seven to go.

Old label actually had the substance in the background. IIRC doesn't have hemp but just as a merchindising ploy.
