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."

Up north we played Beirut which is a lot like Beer Pong only with quarters. I have to say I have lost my touch with both of the games. On New Years some of my college frieds were over and it was a sad sad game to watch.

I bought a pong a long this year. i'm from Michigan and they have a dude that promotes Pong A Long tables here. He gave me a promotional code to use on their web-site to save me $5 on any table purchase. I used it and it did save me $5. It kinda helped with the shipping charge. I got the 8fter and use it all the time.

I love my table and i would recommend pong a long to anyone who either loves beer pong or doesn't even know what it is b/c its pretty cheap, durable and sooo portable! I love taking my pong a long to the beachs of lake michigan!

Oh and if you want to use the code that I used to save $5 its:
MI-PONG use it when prompted druring online checkout.

Pong A Long not only has a superior table to Bing-Bong, they're cheaper and have great customer service. I had to have my Bing-Bong order cancelled through my bank after they were out of stock and took over 2 weeks to reply to any phone or email communication.

Love my Pong A Long table, used it many times and they even gave me a code to save $5 at checkout:

The pongalong table sucks because it stains if you use dark beer...i like the original bing bong tables much better. these are knockoffs
