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."

I am sooooo jealous, Brodie. Fine report. Next year, take us with you and let's go see the Senators, OK?

Brodie -

Clarification - they stock at least one offering from each of the six trappist breweries including Orval and Achel.

Knut Albert -

Even Westvleteren?

You could give them a hint that there are some splenid Italian beers from smaller breweries that they could consider stocking.

I'd love to see more pics!

Where were your beautiful wives while you boys were out carousing in Ottawa?

A most excellent review of a nearby gem. Sounds like a definite road trip.

Knut - No Westvleteren. The pub claims six trappists with KONINGSHOEVEN being one of them. My limited knowlege of the subject (google) indicates that there are seven trappist breweries but many only sites only reference six in production.
