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."

Libarbarian -

Great idea Alan! Most libraries have some sort of program that facilitates donations for books (we have the Lois Hole Legacy program and Adopt-a-Book here). Many also have Adopt-a-Magazine programs as well, where sponsoring a magazine gets the individual or the club's name and contact info on the cover of the magazine (eg. All About Beer: Sponsored by Oregon Brew Crew).

But the secret is this: the money is nice, but any public library these days really, really wants to hear from their users or possible users. Don't see that book by Dogfish Head brewing guru Sam Calagione at your local library? Think it is too specialized, too obscure? Think again! Put in a request for the book and I guarantee most libraries will buy it for the collection.
