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."

Sheri Snively -

Hi Alan,
Thanks for the comments. Yes, I have thought about this story and have even been back to the little brewery restaurant in Prescott, AZ as recently as last month (and you'd be proud...had a beer too!). My book, including the beer story you reference in your blog, is now published, "Heaven in the Midst of Hell: A Quaker Chaplain's View of the War in Iraq". Perhaps as you point out war may be bad for beer in the short run, but if the PTSD, combat stress and other things after ward aren't dealt with war may actually strengthen beer sales. What do you think? Anyway, thanks.
