I only paid half attention to the Polish elections this year, despite being there 14 years ago when the first democratic elections were held, when folks loved or hated Lech. But skimming through the parties vying for a place in the proportional representation of the Sejm, the lower house, I knew I would miss the old PPPP or Polska Partia Przyjaciól Piwa - the Polish Beer Lovers Party. In the October 27th election, they got 16 seats in the legislature. From this brief reference, the PPPP appears to have been a cross between the Canadian Rhino Party and simply a celebration that in democracy if you want a beer lovers party, well, you can have a beer lovers party.
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."
