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."

Mark Tichenor -

I pray the next wave of "extremity" from American brewers doesn't push the envelope of sour. In a beer like Rodenbach Grand Cru, the sour tastes are balanced with a fresh grassiness that takes the edge off, keeping the beer tart and refreshing (and, in my opinion, almost perfect). But RGC is a rare jewel. I'd hate to see a mass movement to do sour for sour's sake.
