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."

Designs knocking around in my head already. As long as the Beer Blog seal of approval features a drinking pig, I can make them by the dozen.

Alan -

Hmmm...that is very interesting. I am of two minds. A stein with a crest or a plaque with a swilling pig emerging out from its face. Your thoughts?

Small plaque with scroll banner on the bottom 'Good Beer Blog' and pig sculpture with stein taking up most of the plaque. Small hole in top for hanging. I may make one today, if time permits. It has to be relatively simple, because I am a simple guy.

Alan -

Simple is good. Can there even be room left for particularization of the award, a little area that an engraved plate can be added rather than or in addition to the scroll? Also would a ceramic relief disk be easier than say attaching half a pig coming out of the face of the plaque? Maybe a pig in profile hoisting a pint?

What is easiest is a pig figurine sitting on a small disk that says 'a good beer blog'(imagine you pig figurines on that disk). Second easiest is the plaque or tile with the pig figure on it, for hanging, with scroll. Yes, extra space for engraved rectangle can be arranged. You may want to also consider the usefulness of BEER STEINS mit schwein.
This is gonna cost you mister.

I'm jealous. I was thinking about that hog heaven, but my fridge is already OVERFULL, mostly with porkslap, from their last sale.

Alan -

Maybe people will buy ads if I give them awards. Maybe that will pay your bill. I think this is starting to look like a business plan.

Have you not a rustic root celler in the purple house into which the contents of Finger Lake Beverages might shift over time?

I plan to be very expensive, and none of those cheapo Canadian loonies, either.
Why yes, the basement is large and cool and why did I not notice this myself?

Alan -

I suggest you start day dreaming about shelving and then day dreaming about staff to assist you with what is placed upon that shelving.
