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."

Sean P. -

There are many variations of beer to found in China above and beyond the standard lager and pilsner style,however,in general you will find these varieties more often in clubs,restaurants and supermarkets.

There are some innovative products now being produced from breweries like:

TsingTao (they make a dark stout like product)
Zhujiang (they produce a very popular draft style and many fruit flavour based beers,top fermented ales and a wheat beer)
Yanjing (produce fruit flavour based beers and top fermented ales).

I agree though,it will take years of catching up for these styles to become widespread and commonly accepted.
