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."

Great find! Its a really fascinating article. One that was written 17 years ago, and while there are things dating it (the definitions of boutique, craft brewery, the fascination with Sierra Nevada, Redhook, Widmer, etc) there are other things that are as relevant now as they were then.
Thanks for the read.

Reading this article reminds me of my own "beer enlightenment". It used to be Molson Canadian. And. Only. Canadian.
Until I finally ventured out and started trying other brands. Now the thought of sipping a Canadian has less appeal to me than just about any other kind of beer. Thankfully there were entrepeneurs twenty years ago who recognized the beer market for <i>what it could be</i>, not what it was.
