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."

Interesting. I'll have to track that down. I didn't like the Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA (I prefer Saranac, Southern Tier, or Buckeye Brewing to it) and the 90 Minute is all right. Although I think Great Divide's Hercules smokes it. 120 might be just the ticket...

I wrote about the 120 a while ago when it came out in December, and have been storing it to see how it tastes over 6 months. The first time I tasted it I thought it was just OK, the alcohol seemed to overwhelm everything else and about knocked me on my butt at 20%. Not sure if it will mellow out over time, but we shall see.

Definitely a sipper. I am usually a bit disappointed with uber-bombs but this one is not bad. I found this one for 7.99 which also made a difference. Yet, when you compare price and quality to a decent sherry, it is certainly a good buy.

I haven't been disappointed by a Dogfish Head IPA yet, but I have to say that I think the 90 Minute is the best. Love your blog!

We've reviewed it over at TBL.

Overall I would have to put it in a class by itself. Put it in a small glass and sip it. There is complexity there. Also, it seems to me that this one varies from year to year or tap to tap. I experienced a pretty green batch at a place called The Free House in Wayne, PA. Didn't like it too much. Sam was there passing it around like water :-) So I wasn't complaining.

At 7.99 you did well. I think it works out to $7US per bottle if you buy it by the case.
