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."

Sounds like a beer I would like - because of the reference to Special London Ale. How strong is it?. Anyone know if this is available in Europe?

Shipyard Export, IPA and Old Thumper are available in Nova Scotia's private stores starting March 17th

Woot-a-rama. That is excellent news except fot the fact that I am 1500 km to the west and left Halifax in 1992. Expect Shipyard IPA sipping to cause serious questions about the claims of Keiths.

FINALLY!!! Texas laws have changed and Shipyard is now available in the lonestar state. I lived in Maine for 9 years before moving to Texas. I love both places, but really missed not having Shipyard. Though Shiner Boch comes pretty close.
