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 -

And today, Labatt announced the closure of its Toronto plant: <blockquote class="smalltext">InBev NV, the world's No. 2 brewer, will close its Toronto plant, throwing 265 employees out of work as demand for the company's Labatt brand declines. InBev, which also makes Stella Artois and Beck's, will invest in the main Labatt brewery in London, Ontario, the Leuven, Belgium-based company said in an e-mailed statement. Competition from discount brewers in Ontario, Canada's biggest market, has eroded the market share of Labatt and Golden, Colorado-based Molson Coors Brewing Co. Discounters have introduced ``buck-a-beer'' brands that account for about a third of take-home sales in Ontario. </blockquote>

That poses an interesting spam dilemma. Is it still spam when it is in the industry?
