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."

Hi Alan,

I started to add a bit of a clarification on the history of St. Bernardus as a comment, but it got rather long. So I made it a post at brewlikeamonk.com and included a photo.

Fabulous - it is alway nice to know kindly, helpful people who are cleverer than oneself. Here is a link to Stan's post.

Great blog ... !!!!
Little correction on the St. Bernardus : they brew the Westvleteren beers from 1946 on ... until 1992 ...

Enjoy the beer !

Perfecto. All the knowledge out there just busting to get out. Nice phoney baloney glassware collection.
