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."

Hi!, I just want to how did the Pineapple beer taste like? Because my brother was thinking of start a production of this beer at a masssive scale, but me I'm a bit unsure about the market for this beer. I'm in South Africa. Your response will be greately appreciated.

Do you produce other beers? Starting with a pineapple brew would be very risky I would think.

The Blue Diamond Lager, which has a can designed to perfectly mimic the classic budweiser can, is without a doubt the worst beer I've ever tried. The pineapple and lemon flavorings can only help.

Really enjoyed your site -- have you ever heard of Sweet China beer? Used to enjoy it with our meals at a small Denver restaurant called Little Saigon, purchased a few cases from Applejack Liquors there, then it disappeared. Had a distinct pineapple essence and was one of the best beers I've ever tasted! Thanks..............

Has anyone heard of Pineapple Coconut flavored beer? I used to buy it at this small store by my job. It is in a bottle like a wine cooler. I have not seen it in about 10years.
It was really good.

I visited China in August and found the pineapple flavoured beer. In the excessive heat (40+C) I found it very refreshing leaving a sweeter aftertaste that larger.
