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."

Pop back when you straighten yourself out. The photos tend to focus themselves better then.

My new favorite beer! A good alternative to Fullers ESB, for when you get tired of the bitterness. Also found and consumed in Ottawa :)

Here in the US you can get many German brands such as Rauchbier, Warsteiner, and Paulaner. but you will need to look around though for the speciality shops.
