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."

did you like it?

Hah! I forgot to mention that - yes I did. Certainly more than any other "American Wheat" which is a style yet to really interest me.

I've always viewed the yeast in Bell's beers a good thing. It's easy to add a little sterile wort to the dregs of a bottle and use it to ferment some homebrew. I haven't used the Oberon yeast, but the regular Bell's strain s very attenuative - something like 80 percent.

where can I buy oberon besides Kalamazoo, MI.? Anywhere near Kentucky?

just bought a 6 pack from total wines in fort myers. each bottle of oberon ale looks like it has what we use to call MOTHER in vinegar. Is this normal to have floating particles in the beer?
