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."

thats not fair! we all try our best to work with the LCBO. Unfortunatly we come across staff who are not interested in micro beer and will not profile it or stock it. so may be you should have a go at the staff in the LCBO stores who should be stocking it and are not!

Well, I think it is fair that I want a lot more access to a lot more Ontario craft beer, Val. My local LCBO seems to be replicating their sense of eastern Euro lagers as I have a fine selection of Ontario craft lagers and ambers but not much else - including too often a lack of your wonderful beers. I am just happy you guys are on a route to an in-law.

What would you think of a chain of OCB shops focusing on Ontario craft beers?

I think that idea would be great! but unfortunatly
AGCO are not ready for that market yet.
