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."

Told ya Tully's was good. I think that weekend trips to Tully's, Magic Bus style, for all Beer Blog readers from Eastern Ontario and NY should be arranged. Somehow, I imagine the trip back would be a bit merrier and more noisy.
Shopping tip from new home in Ithaca: Ithaca coffee company has it coming and going: roast their own coffees which are astounding and affordable (less than Starbucks!), cheese in the middle with lotsa samples, and a terrific selection of single beers and sixpacks from around the world. Desserts too. Coffee+cheese+dessert+beer=one stop shopping!
