A kind correspondent, Garrick Van Buren, has invited us to listen to the podcast he created which includes a discussion of Belgian trappist beers and other brews of note. Here is the link. I haven't listened yet bit any discussion including Westvleteren which also comes with an intro from Tod Maffin, Canada's nicest futurist©, had got to be good.
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."
