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."

Joe -

I'm of two minds. While I lament your beer availability issues, I am somewhat relieved to learn that the U.S. is not the only country with absolutely insane liquor laws.

Alan -

Apparently, we Canadians are proud to proclaim our insane beer laws are dumber than your insane beer laws. We may even trump Utah with tiny Prince Edward Island's ban on beer in cans which is based on protecting a soda pop manufacturer which has since gone out of business.

Wow, I didn't even realize the beer festival was on! I though it was later in the summer.

I'll try to get over there this weekend (tough weekend job, isn't it?)

I knew you were up for an assignment! I'd get myself in the Petit Pub if I were you.
