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."

The most interesting thing would be to investigate the popularity of Palestinian beer in Palestine. Afterall, Muslim doctrine supposedly forbids alcohol consumption.

Alan -

I thought plenty of Palestinians are Christian...lemme check...10% of the Palestinians in Lebanon are according to wikipedia.

Alan -

Hmmm...Gaza is only less than one percent Christian, however. There are also clearly Christian populations in the West Bank. According to this CNN article, Taybeh is a West Bank Palestinian Christian village and the brewer, Mr. Khoury, moved back in 1993 from Boston after the Oslo accord. According to this blog post, the brewery has suffered from anti-brewing protests.

Evghenis -

and not all Christians are beer drinkers.

Alan -

I can't speak for such folk.
