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."

Donavan -

Getting Fantôme beers on Long Island involves a 45 minute drive to the west for me. I've only found one place to get these beers. I'm not complaining. I bought four or five varieties last summer and enjoyed most. The only complaint I've ever heard about Fantôme is the variability of their product (and this from a noted brewer). I can go either way with consistency. I don't reallly care if the brewer is changing the recipe every few months as long as I like what I'm drinking. If variability means I open a crappy bottle, then (obviously) I don't what that. I had a great beer last night, the Southampton Bière de Garde. I should review it! Good excuse to drink more. It will be the featured beer on my podcast tomorrow. Cheers!
