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."

Alan, as luck would have it, Rogue Dead Guy Ale was on the menu tonight. The wife says 'Rogue: not just for breakfast anymore' and I say: 'what a terrific everyday, happy to be alive, tasty ale'.

And lucky us, our downtown kingston KGB-CO is stocking Dead Guy Ale. I also will be trying it this eve! Must be kismet.

Ah, sounds like you're a Kingstonian too. We live in Kingston's very far outer suburbs.
As for Rogue--I ask myself 'why do I need a beer to travel 3000 miles? After all, I could just drink Sackett's Harbor'. Which is a good point. I don't have an answer, except to say Rogue is a great beer, it has made the trip safely, and who says I can't enjoy beers from near and far? And maybe go to Oregon one day for a vacation?

Paul and I are at the Wyoming game and beer shopping next weekend, Gary, in a town near you. We are considering a Middle Ages morning tour. You can join us.

It could be argued that Saturday I will get more bang for my five bucks....football game plus tailgate party. I invite you gentlemen to come this way for your next football experience. I now get the picture: Paul is in the inside circle, one of us from greater (or even GREATER) Kingston. I must say, I truly meet the nicest people around gen x and beer blog.

"inner circus" would be more accurate.
