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."

That 20% looks like an industry average and so it would be heavily skewed towards the big three macros. I’d like to see what a decent ballpark would be for micros/regionals/imports. While obviously most of these bottle rather than can, I’d still think the “packaging” would be significantly less than the big three. If for no other reason, I’d think they spend a greater percentage on the beer ingredients.

I'd think that distibution costs per unit are much higher for craft brewers, too. I doubt that they lay awake at night worrying about the aluminium prices.
