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 have a 3 act "all clean language" 90 minute stand up comedy show - we tour around Canada playing Service Clubs as fundraisers / special events. Audience impressions of 200 or so. I am looking for an alcohol beverage sponsor and will consider value in kind transactions. Take a look at our web site and if you think our show could be a good vehicle to showcase your brand or help your business get more sales - get in touch!


Alan -

Errr...right after we receive your cheque, Russ....though the sponsorship comment bot idea is not bad.

Russell -

thanks - I try to be innovative.

I'll consider an ad on here - send me some rates. I'll even pay you a commish if you can help hook up a sponsor for me. Sounds like you are doing some real hustling on the sponsorship front.


Alan -

Nah - I don't think so - I got a day job on top of this gig.
