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."

Hi Alan, I'm a reporter for Sun Media doing a story about beer loving Canadians for Canada Day and would like to have a chat.
If interested, pls call me at 416-947-2341. (I can't access the gmail account)
Hope to speak to you today (Thurs, June 21). Cheers, Vivian Song

I dont think $ 50 was too bad for such a meal. There will be no domestic fresh lobster in Norway this summer, as the stock is too depleted to allow catching any. We'll have to make do with the frozen Canadian stuff. The fancy places will probably fly in live lobster from somewhere on the globe.

Not to worry Tim, I like Hacker-Pschorr too! They have a terrific variety of weizens and I have literally nothing bad to say about them.

Their only disadvantage is that, of course, their stuff has to be imported, making it slightly less fresh and slightly more expensive than homegrown wheat beers. And on the whole, I'll pick fresh and local over a little older and imported most days of the week. Which in no way detracts from H-P's great wheat beer. =)
