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."

Fukito -

Well, I stated before those two books are more bussines oriented. I agree with your point that Calgione´s book is far more pushing, optimistic and, to some point, like maniac-obsessed. I found it to be more of a motivating book than anything else. It describes bussines more like an adventure and passion than anything.
Beer School is more foccused on process, it talks more about a terrible battle than an adventure. While having a more down-to-earth approach, which seems to be closer than the real thing, it felt a little... well... dull, as you said.

I found both of them to be usefull from a bussines perspective, finding them to be about brewing a plus. I think, however, that Brewing Up a Bussines was more catching and had a better time reading it, overall.
But for reading about beer I look forward to "Three sheets to the wind", "A man walks in a pub" and "Brewing like a mond".
