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."

So far I tried a case of the Reb'Ale and a case of the Belge. The Reb'Ale reminds me of the sleeman's Rouse and the Belge reminds me of the Fin du Monde. In any case great beer for the price.

Excellent point. Value is an important element in these considerations. If I were to buy any again, La Belge would likely be it.

I'm travelling frequently past the location of the brewery. So on spec, this Thursday, I'll try to scope out the "farm/brewery" and let you all know if I score some beer. Otherwise, another site proposed a Metro grocery store in Verdun, this one amongst others I've been to is the Mecca for craft-brewed beers! I'll try to remember to report back on this development.

Thanks John. That would be good of you to give an update as this post is now almost 3 and a half years old.
