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."

I am truly amazed that you are able to say so many kind things about a light beer, Alan. You are truly too good for this world!

Alan -

It is a good light beer. They do exist - Shipyard in Maine has one, too.

Alan -

Coopertown's Golden is another example - actually one of their beers I prefer.

Do you know if they are going to sell Heineken Light in Canada, because i can't seem to find any here???

Alan -

No idea. I only heard it was not being sold here at the initial release.

We went to WA for a long weekend and stocked up on Heineken Premium Light, 48 awesome bottles worth. This beer is spoiling us for any other light beer. Wrote to Heineken Canada and was told there are no plans to import it to Canada???? This beer truly has the Heineken taste and goes down very smooth, especially in frosty mugs.

I just want to add that Puerto Rico is Heineken's 2nd Capital in the World. I'm proud to say that a 100 x 35 island is the second biggest beer drinkers in the world right after the beer capital Germany...(this information is statisticly proved.) Also we are the happiest country in the world!! And we celebrate the longest Christmas Season ever....So of course we drink lot's of beer. Making Heineken the imported beer of choice. AHHH!!
