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."

While I have not had any of Anheuser-Busch's faux micro-brews, but I have had Coors' faux micro, Blue Moon. Blue Moon Belgian White is actually quite good. While it may not have quite as much character as some real micros, it has the benefits of good quality control, and wide distribution. I never would have guessed that it was made by Coors based on the taste, yet I can find it at bars across the country. If more major breweries started producing beers like Blue Moon Belgain White, I would be a pretty happy about that.

On the other hand, the Blue Moon Pumpkin Ale tastes exactly like the swill I expect from a major American brewery. You win some, you lose some.

I think I may have a blue moon white in the stash down there in the <a href='http://www.genx40.com/images/beerblog/stash.JPG">lower right</a>. I will have to get it out and compare against other <a href='http://beerblog.genx40.com/archives/2004/june/fourwittes">wittes of the past</a>.
