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."

Adam & Bryan -

Your blog continues to live up to its name :-) Keep up the good work

Let us know if there's something regional we can help you with.

Alan -

Hey guys - good post wrapping-up the 2006 wrap-ups.<p>Are you guys both in PA?

I am noting a slight sweat on the bottles pictured. Yes, cool 1000 Island Ales would be about perfect.
A most terrific post.

Adam & Bryan -

Yes, Bryan and I are both in PA. In fact we are both on the same block ;-)

I'm serious about the help. I know its hard to get regional beer sometimes. Slyfox, Victory, Yards and even Yeungling (although I don't really understand that as much). There are lotsa brewpubs too, but, often they don't bottle or can.

Thanks for the compliment. I'll pass it on to Bryan too.


Alan -

Like you we have inter-provincial border issues with beer and one blogger and I are working on what is called "the National Beer Policy" - or NBP - in which samples are shared. We guessed that this might develop into what might be called "the North American Free Beer Treaty" or NAFBA. You may be the thin edge of the wedge.
