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."

Alan -

I think triples are a hard style to like as a regular drink. I would be more inclined to have a whole chicken in a basin of triple with crushed rosemary and basil leaves and citrus zest than to sit down with a couple, say, to watch baseball on the TV.

Hi: you could easily do a comparison of all the Trappist triples (of which Chimay has one . . .).

Thank you!

Alan -

Easily??? IT's five years since I wrote this post and I still haven't had them all, especially the Westy - though I have it in my stash. Will it be the last beer to be popped before the end times?

I did finally have a Chimay white label in '06 as well as the cheese. Waiting on the breakfast cereal.
