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."

Meg -

I lived for a year in Munich and still look back nostalgically to the wonderful Warsteiner beer we had there. In a bar with a proper tap it takes a minimum of 7 minutes to draw, so you had to develop a close relationship with your bartender so that he would know to start pulling another when you were a few minutes from finishing the current one...which usually meant that you drank a lot more than you meant to do as you had to remember to tell him NOT to start another...great beer though!

If you are ever in Munich, also try out the Edelstoff - Noble stuff - a lovely non-wheat beer!
