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."

Unfortunately, DAB is not a real Dortmunder. It's from Dortmund, but it has none of the characteristics of that kind of beer. It's just a plain ol' Pilsener. Peep it, Oakes knows the sco'.

In about 1984, I had the thinnest glassed bottle of beer called Dortmunder Union and I swear it was one of the finest I ever had. Malty yet pale. All I recall. Loverly.

I AM A REAL DORTMUNDER! -

Yes I Am A REAL DORTMUND! NOT A BEER but a guy! And yes we have great beers! and yess we would drink peeee before we would drink amarikan beer! But you should try Brinkhoffs Nr.1 beer! thats a realy good one from dortmund! DAB ist lil bit a peace of shit... So, now cu from a german guy thats loves dortmunder beer and just can lough about beer from usa... its taste like nothing and has nearly no alkohol inside. Or you try Polish beer with 8% or 12% alcohol, they realy realy taste good... cya

Somewhere in a fiction novel is mentioned Dortmunder Union Beer. Anyone seen it? Just curious
