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."

JD -

Excellent post, Donavan. I used to live out in Southampton and one of my roommates got into the home brew. This was "back in the day" (aka, the mid 90s). I went with him to one homebrewer's night... I think it might have been in Port Jefferson. Publick House was something else back then, but I've been back to check that out as well. Ah, the memories.

Donavan Hall -

Hey thanks, JD. Sounds like the memories were good---it involves beer after all.

JD -

Yeah, I should stick to beer. Because all my memories involving whiskey ... well, I can't remember them.

Ah, you lucky dog.....I've only the bottled memories of SPH, as I live far enough away (Philadelphia) to make the trip to Southampton be a little more than a joyride. Someday....

p.s. nice writeup

Bryan- I spent a week in Pennsylvania back in March and am still writing up the brewpubs I visited there. Philadelphia is on my list of destinations.
