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."

Duvel is an amazing beer. I believe it is the best beer I have ever had. I first tried it in NYC @ Jean-Gorges restaurant in the Trump World Tower at Colubmus Circle. I wish I could find someplace to buy it. I could go for one right now!

Well, you should be able to get it everywhere - even without giving wee Donnie a dime for his troubles. We are you and we can get you to a bottle or at least a shop with one.

Another Duval. Passion fruit is right. Lovely.


One of my top 5 beers. Had the beer on tap at the Belgian Cafe in the city of Amsterdam.

Duval is indeed the best beer on the planet.
To Loach - you aks where you can find...
any "bevmo" in your area. And if you're lucky enough to have Trader Joe's you can go there and pull it off the shelf for less $$ then you will find anywhere.
If they don't have it, ask them to order it. They will have it within the week.

Is Duvel and Duval the same beer? I had Duval over in Belgium and loved it. The duvel I had here wasnt the same.

I can't be held responsible for the quality of my spelling in 2005.
