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."

Ruby in Bury -

Hi Paul,

I really like this blog, and have bookmarked it so I know where to come for info about beer. I've just read your profile info - Mr Ruby used to go into Beer2Go and was sorry when it closed. I think he once had a conversation with you about Tusker lager (he's originally from Kenya). I've never been in the Rose and Crown but a friend whose knowledge about Bury I respect immensely once told me to go visit it, as he said, "it's one of Bury's last proper pubs"? I don't know much about Bury's pubs to be honest but I wonder if you'd agree with his statement?

Nice to cyber meet you, cheerz - Ruby.
