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."

A local brewer here in western Pennsylvania brews a wet hop beer in the fall. It's out now and it can't be that far of a drive from Ontario, right?

Here in Denmark a craft brewery called "Gourmetbryggeriet" has brewed a wet hop beer called "Harvest Ale". There was an article last Sunday in the newspaper Politiken about a guy from the brewery driving from Denmark to England and back in one day to get the hops for the brew. I wrote about the article in my blog (in Danish sorry): http://wp.8deg.com/2006/10/04/man-kan-ikke-fotografere-duften/

I'm a home brewer with some cascades in my yard ready to harvest and I want to do a wet hop ale. Any suggestions on adjusting hop adition using fresh hops...? I readomewheret is somewhere around seven times more hops than using dried...
Thanks in advance!
