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."

I've just added the beer blog banner to the new site, and have published a beer-related post It didn't seem beer blog worthy, but reprint if you like.

Alan -

I think that is an excellent entry for the beer and economics category. Why a hand-towel? What does that say about the culture?

I picked up a six of Trois Pistoles last night and was reminded how much I like it. It's stronger than Raftman at %9 or %9.5 but I prefer the darkness and sweetness of it. Not a touch of bitterness and two bottles over the course of 2.5 hours was enough to leave me feeling full and happily content.

Alan -

It really is a national treasure that brewery. And value. Can you imagine being 19 and looking for a six to get you through a party? No one else would touch it and you would only drop twelve bucks.

Ben -

But oh the hangovers...

The sickest I've ever been from beer was not being careful with Unibroue stuff.

Alan -

Well I was thinking a certain pace would have been involved too but I guess I am a long way from 19 and a party. I was thinking of mooch deterence. We used to buy the least appealing beers so no one would ask to have one. Usually that meant you had to buy double to take care of pals who will remain nameless. [You know who you are.] Ten Penny by Moosehead was often employed for this purpose.

Unibroue are indeed a national treasure - though I really don't like to indulge in more than two bottles/glasses of their stronger fare. I'm fortunate enough to have found a vendor for their stuff over here. I'll send you something on that later today. Oh, apologies for the late reply, on the earlier question gender roles in Japan are still quite traditional when compared to (rest of) the West.
