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."

Robert Spicer -

You better put something in your will about who gets to drink that beer if you die before 12/12/12. Oddly enough you have those Google ads for living wills along the side of the blog which brings up another issue...what if you're in a persistant vegetative state? Maybe your living will should have a clause stating that the beer should not be consumed under such circumstances (God forbid...I wish you no harm). I think your best bet is to have your living will say that the beer should be brought to your hospital room and be ready and waiting for when you come out of the coma. If you're not out of it by 12 December 2012 your friends and loved ones pull the plug and enjoy a drink on you (not literally of course).

I think if I am in a vegetative state in around 12-12-12, I want to be fed the beer through the tube. If I am dead, pop it at my wake.

Robert Spicer -

Just make sure I'm on the invitation list. Whoever is in charge of organizing the wake can send me an e-mail.

Alan -

I will make sure that is in the will.
