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."

Well done Alan. The old take-the-wife-out-on-the-town-'why-say-isn't-that-a-brewery?' trick. Nice.
Hey, perhaps my rather fantastic beer review earlier this month inspired you!

I'll add my name to the hat of Mill Street fanciers. The coffee porter and tankhouse ale are now staples of the beer fridge.

Anxiously looking forward to the day when they come to Kingston on tap somewhere.

I have been to the Distillery District fairly often but never stopped in at that joint. I do like their Tankhouse Ale though, and I did not know they offered an IPA as well -- I'll have to try it.

Hey, bucko - let me know next time you're in town so we can have an Ontario Beer Blogger get together. We can have you, and me, and... uh... well, I guess that's it.

A joyous rapture! A 2-4 of Tankhouse ale rolled out of my local Brewers Retail and into the back of my old Volvo this weekend. An understated cardboard box resplendant with inside goodness. A local pub cannot be far behind with an offering from Mill Street?

Word has it the Queens Grad House is selling it on tap. Maybe that will be the scene of the Friday KSPC.

I am looking forward to the day when I can get up to Toronto, and visit the Mill Street Brew Pub. Tonight I sit in West View, PA sipping the local swill from the U.S. I had my first taste of Tank House Ale in 2005. I'm mighty envious of you folks in Toronto, that can get a Tank House any time you please.
