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."

Stonch -

I've just realised something and it has nothing to do with beer.

In Sex and the City one of the characters had a boyfriend called "Big". This daft-sounding name has appeared in several imported American TV shows.

Your post has just given me a brainflash - perhaps "Big" is short for the Polish first name "Zbigniew"?

Am I right?

If so do I win a prize?

Alan -

I thought the short form was "zebuh". Actually I just made that up. My nickname for much of my life had been "Big" or variations on that but that is because I am big.

I'm looking for an Okocim Imperial helmet beer mug. Do you have any information as to where I might find one.
