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."

Reginald Goddard -

I was very intrigued by the last product you mentioned - the "september" ale. ¿Is the beer brewing process compatible with grape juice? does it ferment and produce something close to real wine? And this "assemblage", how does it really taste? It makes me remember my days as a teenager when we would buy some cheap Lager and mixed it with Semillon white wine. This abomination was called a "Yugoslavian"(never knew why, because I'm quite sure folks from the Balcans don`t mix beer with wine). The only real thing I can remember about it was the hangovers. They were positively the worst I have ever experienced. I wonder if this experiment from Panil does have the same issues as did the "Yugoslavian" from back then.

Anyway, this is the best Beer Blog around. Congratulations.
