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."

Ale Fan -

I'm wondering which beer this is. I suspect in the UK it's called Organic Ale. One of their big sellers.

I am still fighting with this post - forgive the bad HMTL for the next wee while, Ale-Fan.

I just got this beer tonight, wonderful and interesting flavour, and wonderful historical bottle.. I wondered the same thing about the name, and figured it was also the "organic ale" as on our bottle it does specify that it is organic - also the brewery's website states their organic ale is an "english ale" in the details... probably would be repetitive to call it an english ale in an english market ;-)

Keep blogging on good beer :-D

This has become, over the past six months or so, one of my all-time favourite beers. It's got a wonderful tang to it, I don't know how else to describe it. Once I bought their Golden Ale (I think it's called) and it was nice too but I haven't seen it since in the store. This, though, I buy regularly. Great blog!

I picked up a bottle of this today and kick myself for forgetting the best and tastiest session beer that is available here in Ontario.
