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 is a good question, and if the Dutch East India company actually did make hoppy beers to ship to SE Asia, it will make my enjoyment of the hoppy beers the Belgians make today (solely for export to the US, I think) so much more historicaly significant.

Knut Albert -

The same goes for the Danes, with colonies both in India and in the West Indies. What beer did they ship there, and what beer did they brew there?
