OK, this is beer porn, in that many of the products are brewed on the other side of the world and are for most practical purposes unavailable; it's also big and heavy, with many colour pictures of bottles and labels and whatever you call those things they put on the pumps to tell you what beer it is (beer clips, I think). Each beer has a column which invites you to record your own tasting notes, but the glossiness of the book discourages it even if you were of a mind to fill all the boxes in. You will also come across words such as "quaffable" (see below), which some people snigger at, but then it is a fair enough word to describe the kind of liquid that can be drunk in great big gulps without making you feel queasy.Big and shiny and about beer! That is doomed to be on my bookshelf soon.
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."
