I am happy to report that 27 folks have signed up as members without privileges (MWPs) with the North American Branch of the National Good Beer Blog Mapping Service, GIS Division. But I am a bit confused as to the meaning of the great wasteland of membership that is the Prairies. It is true that here in the near north, I do not have much access to the ales of Saskatchewan, Wyoming or Oklahoma and so can't write about them. But surely there are readers out there who can fill in the gaps. Have a look below and see what is out there that you can add to the unfolding story hereabouts. You can send any tips and stories to this blog's gmail account.
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."
