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."

Hi Alan! Glad to see you promoting traditional pub games. My pen name's Stonch though, not Stronch!

Alan -

I knew that - only my fingers forgot. Take up the cause further on your side of the ocean. We should make this an international effort. And I need to find a place to play London Skittles. That looks like amazing fun. Have you ever gone to one of those pubs?

Stonch -

I've not played pub skittles but it looks wicked. Will find out where in the UK they still do it. Cheers.

Alan -

Looks like the Freemasons Arms in Hampstead is the place to go.

Paul -

The Freemasons' Arms is the place all right. We play on Tuesdays 8-11pm. Come down and we'll show you how to play. Prepare to be amazed.

I live 4,000 miles away. Can you send photos or even a movie?
