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."

Just thinking about this beer makes my head hurt... About a year ago at a Christmas party, there was a 1/2 keg of this on tap and it's soooo deceptive - the "Wallop" refers not only to the amount of hoppage, but also the amount of alcohol. I hope they're not^H^H^H^ serving that again this year!

[Translation] I care not for this ale.

8.5%? More like 10.5%!! Oy!

More malty than Ruination or Pliny. Not as good as either, but pretty tasty.
