According to the latest analysis of the Union of Brewers in Bulgaria... [o]verall beer consumption went up by 11 per cent. Kamenitsa and Zagorka experienced a five to six per cent increase in sales.Why do I love it? Because I am convinced that someone is just making it up. Making it all up because he can and no one really cares. I bet if we added up all the increased in overall beer consumtion reported from Bulgaria, I think it would add up to 3,567.6% over the last 18 months. It represents 127% of the Bulgarian economy now. Somewhere there is a bureaucrat at a desk in a grey concrete building in Sofia, wearing an itchy suit and sitting in a chair that has made the same squeek it has squeeked for 7 years now, convinced no one will notice when he just whips up one of these reports and foists it upon an uninterested globe. But I've noticed you, buddy. I've got my eye on you.
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."
