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."

Whipped cream and Punkin Ale? That sounds like something I might have to have my wife try out for me. She'll drink about anything with whipped cream on it.

I never heard the port and imperial stout thing before, interesting....

I was going to suggest you check out Mr. Boudrau's site; but, I see Stephen beat me to it.

I can't say beer with whipped cream is particularly appealing; but, I was pleasantly surprised by an old-fashioned Ale Flip. Quite the warming beverage.

In the interests of science, I also made a float from achingly stark Cantillon Fou' Foune and chocolate mint ice cream, the only ice cream in the house. It was good and brought out the peach by cutting down the acid but I would go with straight chocolate or maybe a good coconut one the next time.
