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 -

Good report. You know what I have done to create greater beer awareness? I started a work beer club. I found some likely suspects, brave enough to move away from micros and every few Fridays we go to a different pub to try the same different brew. We talk, make notes and rank it with past efforts. Sure, it all leads to shop talk eventually but that is one of the points of good beer, too.

I do something similar. I do a "Wednesday Night Beer" outing with other science types. Before last winter we were trying to find a new pub each week, but now we've settled into orbiting around the brewpubs and a couple of taprooms we all like.

Oh, just for grins, I decided to read out loud (dramatically interpret) and record today's Long Island beer update. If you want to listen to the results, you can follow this link.
