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."

Let me go ahead and throw my name is as getting it done early. Here's my entry.

My contribution for this session is more situational beer fiction from Callahan's -- I talk to Pete Crusoe about Dubbels. Enjoy! BTW- On my podcast today (episode 83), I drink a Corsendonk Abbey Brown. (Oh, I'm a tease.)

Donavan -

One more thing, I just noticed that my dubbels article (a "style of the month" overview) on <i>The Spirit World</i> has been published.

Alan -

Fabulous and a great effort all in the great cause of beer. If we all do not have a very clear idea of what <i>dubbels</i> are by the end of the day I do not know what I could be missing.

Alan - New Belgium isn't a treaty issue. They can't make enough beer (although they brewed 435,000 barrels in 2006) to ship any past Chicago. Not to rub it in but the Abbey has won nine medals at the Great American Beer Festival.

Alan -

Second hint: the NAFBT is not a government initiative but a peer-to-peer, beer-for-beer program which mirrors the Canadian domestic National Beer Policy ("NBP").

Friday night blues and beer gone live.

Jay Brooks -

Here's mine, Dubbel Your Pleasure. For those interested, I'll be posting May's topic/beer on Monday.

Did the entry at 1 this afternoon (Eastern), but no WiFi there, and as I mention in the blog...I was busy. But I'm in before midnight local time!

Stephen Beaumont -

Not sure precisely when admin got it live, but my second dubbel did go up some time yesterday at http://www.thatsthespirit.com/en/blog, and at long last, comments have even been enabled! (The beer, BTW, is Brother Thelonious from North Coast.)

Alan -

Updated above, Stephen.

John Allison -

Better late than never? I'm still trying to get up to speed with the blog world...

Being a person of Dubbels descent, I am really interested in what is going on here, tell me more! Charlie
