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."

Ben -

Why do I have the image of Ford Prefect sauntering up to a bar and offering to write a review for The Guide in exchange for berr running through my mind?

Alan -

Yes - but if I say who I am and mention the website, it is always at the end of the visit. I usually travel under the guise of a haggard father of elementary school kids. If I am a beer writer than I am the only beer writer who confirms whether there are chicken fingers and fries on the menu before I ask what is on tap.
