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."

Hi, I am the brewer of Fraoch ~ heather ale and of many historic ales from Scotland see our web site www.fraoch.com for details. I am interested in blog sites and would like to experience what goes on if any one has any interest or enquiries on our beers then .... go ahead and ask.


Alan -

Fabulous. Welcome to my blog and our blog. You know, I have a bottle of the seaweed beer of yours cued up for a review. We should have a dialogue like in <i>The Compleat Angler</i> about it and what seaweed means. Being a Maritime Canadian I am used to the idea of seaweed as a consumable - dulse for example - and the tradtion behind your beer I would guess is based on the same idea.<p>By the way, I reviewed your historic ales set back here in November 2004.
