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."

OK, but where do you stand on Labatt Blue?

Smoove D -

I drink it when I'm out, because it's cheap and decent. But only on draft. I don't want to be seen holding a can of PBR, because then people might think I'm a hipster. In those cases, I drink Rolling Rock, which is also cheap.

I am having a PBR from Canada now, brewed under license by Sleeman. Seems overwrought with flavour. I will have to compare soon.
