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."

just to be clear, as a transplant to Utah ( I moved here for the snowboarding) salt lake city is different then the rest of the state. what weirdest happens outside of salt lake stays in utah, not salt lake.

Take a gander at the laws of the Utah Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (http://www.alcbev.state.ut.us), which classifies "beer" as having a maximum of 4% ABV (3.2% ABW). Anything stronger is called "heavy beer," which I guess is kind of like "heavy metal." You can practically taste the evil!

Well, I've got a couple of bottles of Samichlaus in the fridge. Time to worship the Beast!

Read a book while you do that, Evan. Embrace the goat-god.
