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."

Much as I respect and use BA, it does appear to be firmly USA-American, as opposed to international. That's a shame, as good beer should know no borders. Almost all beer types in America - other than California Common, I believe - are derived from European styles. Nevertheless, certain styles are described on BA as "American this" and "American that", and even beers brewed elsewhere are placed in those categories. The history and culture of beer means a lot to most of us and I don't think that approach does anything to help promote and preserve it.

Adam Beck -

I too like Beer Advocate the site and the magazine. I do agree that there are weeknesses though. Any good thing is not perfect.

It is part of our responsibility to make sure that the other voices are heard. That's why we have blogs, no? Let your voices (key tappings) be heard! Keep up the good work.

Stonch, maybe it is time for a BA type site/mag with a more international flavor.
