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."

I was there yesterday, Ithaca Beer Co HQ. We should all be lucky enough to live in Ithaca, but since people can't I hope they will do like Alan and visit us here. We love guests. HQ looks like an old hardware store, which it probably is. There are at least 3 hotels near it, and 2 rather amazing state parks with Niagara Sized (almost) waterfalls and swimming at those waterfalls.

MY point. Check your notes, Alan, about their other hoppy monster, Cascazilla. These guys know how to mix it up.
