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."

Please don't just say, "Pair good beer with good food!"

Tell "them" them which beers best match which beers.

Finally finished off this six with the Stoudts Double IPA.

Having a brutal bitter three years later and like what I wrote back then - usually I think I was off my nut.

Alan -

Just had another two years later and again and liked it. Like it a lot. IPA's are like that.
