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."

The German purity law is nothing more than a farce. It wasn't devised to protect the quality of beer in the first place, and it certainly doesn't work that way today. If anything, it's probably to blame for the fact that Germany isn't a particularly exciting country in terms of beer today.

I found a brewery in Florence that also claims to follow the purity law. They throw all the herbs they can find in the Tuscany hillsides into the brew.
(Now, if I could only get them to answer e-mails about opening hours..)

Is this some joke??
