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."

Alan-terrific reporting. How often does a person get to hang out at a brewery talking beer with the maker? It was a hard job, I am sure, but somebody had to do it.

BTW--will the wife now see a smile when she declares it is time to visit her parents???

We are having a Stratford collegiate reunion (1950)in Toronto on July 16, 2006. Is there anywhere in Toronto that we can but Stratford lager in bottles.

I think it is a kegging operations so far. That may not be an issue for the brewery. Here are the contacts for Joe:

Excellent news as Stratford Pilsner is now at the LCBO. I am well behind the times as Joe has let me know that "bottles started rolling in May" It is at LCBOs in London, Stratford, Kitchener & Toronto. How Weslakian. Go get yours.
