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."

There as a regular at my local the Jerusalem Tavern who used to put drinks for others on his tab, but then did a flit without paying it and never returned...

I'm used to this whole round buying business when you go into the pub with my friends. We usually keep the rounds limited to our group. Buying rounds for folks who just happen to be sitting at the bar is a new phenomenon to me. Last Saturday night I was in Callahan's with two of my buddies and this guy comes in with his wife. The guy orders his drink and his wife's and adds on a round for us. Then he says he wants the juke box turned on. Turns out the round was to buy us off so he could put on whatever music he wanted; of course we couldn't complain when Olivia Newton John's Xanadu stars playing -- he'd paid for our beer!
