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."

Knut Albert Solem -

But if someone is concerned about this, I think they should focus on alcopops. A little fiddling with the taxes on those have destroyed the market in some countries.
But you still find chocolate milk with 4.5% alcohol in the shops, and I don't really think that is what we needed.

Alan -

I don't think we have the issue on alcopops here in North America that Europe has. Certainly there is not the clamour in our press that you see on the BBC web news about youth binges. But we don't have chocobooze either.

Ben -

Enticing kids with cartoon characters, etc, reminds me of the "Joe Camel" cigarette ads a few years ago.
