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."

Spencer Thomas -

I was looking forward to this beer, because it is definitely in one of my sweet spots -- oaky, funky, a bit sour. I had my first chance at it on draft at a local Octoberfest celebration. I was surprised that I wasn't wild about it then, but I think the problem was that it was just not right for the setting. My second experience was drinking it from a 6-pack at a "retreat", and I liked it a lot better then, particularly sitting in front of the campfire. At home, sipping from a snifter, it's even better.
