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."

How odd - I'm also having a hefeweekend!

(in that I've drank several in preparation for a party where I'm supplying the beer)

I love Widmer Brothers', with a lemon wedge. I am beginning to exhibit signs of intolerance for unfiltered wheat beers, but I continue to drink this brew anyway! It's worth the pain!

After reading the chapter on wheat beers in Brewmaster's Table, and doing a bit of a wheat beer tour myself this weekend (it must be the weather bringing it out of us), I'd be willing to suggest that hefeweissen is the ultimate all-around beer. Don't sound so victimized!

I agree, hefes are immensly refreshing. My recent post from Vienna airport has a similar point.
And a lovely photo, too. Beer porn at its best!

This is my favourite bottled wheat beer. We used to sell it when we had our shop. Great with spicy food.
