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."

Wouldn't that be the original Budwieser which is now sold in the USA as Czechvar I think.

I only recognise one beer called Budweiser, like I only recognise one Elvis as having talent. Neither of them originate in the USA

I'm also not a big lager fan, so I didn't sample the Zywiec lager when I had the chance. I regret that. But, as I noted in the previous post, the Zywiec Porter was one of the finest I've tasted; I'm not surprised to hear of other splendid stuff from them.
You're wrong about only one Elvis having talent though. Costello is by far my favourite Elvis, but in my old age I have started to smewhat appreciate the King. Also, Elvis Ramone (Clem from Blondie) provided a nice fill-in on drums while Marky was in detox.

I tried a Zywiec last evening ~ I agree with the recommendation. Very tasty.
