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."

Stonch -

To be fair I think CAMRA liaise with Wetherspoons a lot. Indeed the manager of The Crosse Keys in the City - one of the chain's flagships - was telling me just that yesterday.

I too have been nonplussed by mild month. Apart from a few honourable exceptions, very few pubs are taking part.

Alan -

Well, seeing as my continent is not involved, I think that trumps both CAMRA and that pub chain.

Bailey -

I've not seen any mild except in places which usually stock it. Fuller's jumped the gun by having a mild on as their guest ale in March. So, yeah, I'm not sure what's happened this year, given what a huge success the month of mild was last year. Maybe some pubs had barrels of mild sitting around for months and don't want to repeat the experience...?
