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."

Greatest brown ever? Ah, the pangs of regret!

I saw this beer on a recent business trip to Los Angeles. It looked very inviting, but I passed it up in favour of some Stone and Bear Republic.

I was not unhappy with those choices, but I always wonder about "the beer not taken". I'll stick this on the short list for my next trip.

Alan -

The interesting thing is how this is not a big beer or an break through style but just a nice comforting easy-going brown that has all the browninesses that make browns so brown. And there are always beers missed or, worse, beers not noted down that you later regret.
