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."

Stinky Cheese! I want to start "A Good Stinky Cheese Blog". This is as far as I have gotten.

Welcome aboard, Donavan! I love stinky cheese with my beer as well, while my wife is not too happy about it - it makes all the milk in the fridge taste of the cheese, too. Favourites: Stilton with English old ales, Parmesan with Belgian Trappist beers.

I love czech beer. Especially "Zlaty bazant" and "Smadny mnich".

I had some Stilton right after drinking the Kisz Bier. There's a wonderful little cheese shop right across from Patti B's where you can find all kinds of interesting cheeses. This Stilton was a deep, almost cheddar orange, with several lines of crumbly gray-white blue running through it. The blue part was quite spicy, but mixed with he orange part it came off as pleasantly mild.

The first thing my son said when we walked in the cheese shop (he's 2 and a half) is "Papa, it smells like poo-poo."
