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."

It is amazing what we are wiling to do for a beer, isn't it? I'll have to have a Beamish one of these days.

Alan -

There is some talk in the social engineering that is Ontario's LCBO that bottles are moving out and more cans coming in. With any luck that will see Beamish return.

Greg Clow -

Enjoy your Beamish while you can, Donovan, as according to this article, you soon won't be able to get it in the US. :(

Donavan -

I guess I'll just have to start a "Save Beamish" campaign, or steal over the border into Canada.

<i>or steal over the border into Canada.</i>

Uh... we can't get it here, either.

(Or at least we can't get it in Ontario - it might be available in other provinces, I'm not sure.)

Donavan Hall -

I thought Canada was the land of all good things.
