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."

I really love the beers of Kulmbach and Bamberg. In particular, the various smoked beers of the latter city, the Mahrs brau Hefetrub line, and the Mönschof Kellerbier shown in your photo.

I would also say that the Mönschof schwarzbier might even be better than Köstritzer. And that is saying something.
