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."

Barknee -

I actually enjoyed the Sawtooth Ale last time I tried a 6r'...Perhaps you had a bottle that had some extended shelf-life to it, or the style is not one of your fav's..
My review appears in the "web address" above..
Nice blog BTW cheers!!

Alan -

I love the style - that just was not in the style. But it may well be that it was a bad example but it was from a busy shop. I really liked the two darker ales of theirs I tried. And, of course, you are right to like what I don't.

Barknee -

Thank you my good man! Never had the op. to try the rest of the line, I'll take your word for it!
I thought I would give you my example of a Cooperstown "situation" ;-)
All the best to ya'

Alan -

I am also wondering - given my recent Great Divide experience - whether Colorado is also a hot bed of hardwater beer, not a favorite of mine.
