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."

Thanks for that and welcome Julia! What a great idea. But I have to ask my only western New York question. Will I be able to get a weck with the beer on the trail?

Julia -

That is a logical question. Most brewpubs in this part of NYS do have a roast beef sandwich of some variety on their menu. Surely it makes sense to add it to all pub grub menus across the state, nay, the country!

Alan -

Maybe those will be the regions along the trail. Spiedie country. The land of weck. Where the buffalo wings roam.

How ironic. This coming from one of the states (NY) where you now have to register beer kegs.

Having a UK Beer aficionado visit in May 2006. Is this beer trail now in place?

How do I get details of pubs?

If not in place can you recommend pubs (or breweries) to visit between NY City and Buffalo?
