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."

Ahem, actually they have been doing one bad thing like spamming beer message boards. The Brewing Network in particular, they joined posted hello and all I have seen out of them since is press releases and not a honest participation as a community member. Now this is just my own opinion and frankly if they announced things in a more person voice I don't think I'd complain but it is what it is.

Frankly, it is a great product, but the tiny little Wagner Valley Amber Lager travels 30 miles to my fridge, and Colorado beer travels at least 1500 miles, so.....

I was about to respond in agreement to Flying Dog's recent blog tactics. However, I just read Thomas' comment. I was unaware of this particular facet of Flying Dog's internet presence, and frankly, am disappointed. This is a prime example of the power of internet marketing, either for good or bad. I still think Flying Dog has done some good stuff in reaching out to beer bloggers. Perhaps they've tried to stretch it too far.

That is too bad but maybe a lesson to be learned. My dealings have all been personal and direct with Flying Dog staff.
