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! There were at least four or five on there that I hadn't seen before!

Just as a note: in trying to get "The Pour" into a proper "beer & ale" (who needs that nasty wine!) rss feed, I made this link and it seems to work;
The other rss feed links on the pour's page all seem to feed all of his categories, rather than just beer and ale. This may be obvious to some of you, but I was actually a bit shocked that it worked considering there wasn't an option to do so linked from the page.

Now I'm off to drink an ale that is also a beer! :)

I must be the last to clue into the existence of the Morning Advertiser. Note the active comments under articles effectively making it a massive blog populated by UK publicans.

There is Gay Orbit, but Michael told me that he knows you so you probably already know that. You might also see something interesting in the Friday beer blogging that I do at John Cole's site, for example I thought this post (or this) was pretty good. Click on the link at the bottom for the rest of my beer-related stuff. I couldn't taste my way out of a paper bag but at least I'm having fun.

Thanks for the plug! As we approach the date of our store relocation I've had slightly less time to post on the blog, but rest assured I haven't forgotten...

Thanks for the mention, although Hop Talk is not just me, but also Ron, whom I have known for approximately forever.
