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."

HEll YES!!!!!!!! I want to open a wine and craft brew place in WV, but the distribution companys don't carry what beer lovers want. What can I do to help change this.

Why should we be limited by the alcohol content in our beers, especially since these same "restrictions" don't apply to liquor and wine. Prohibition has come and gone. WV is in a fog and needs to get out of this backwards state of mind. . .I think anyone can agree, that allowing the sale of craft beers in West Virginia will be good for business!
I enjoy good beer, but I have to go out of state to find it. Please let me know how can I help make progress to resolve this issue!

I live in WV but very close to Pennsylvania, so when i want craft brew i drive to pa and bring it back to my house. I wish WV would wake up and take this law off the books. PA also needs to loosen their restrictions. All beer stores are state owned and they are hard to find and the tax is outrageous.
