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."

Paul -

Beer styles as an indication of what you might be getting is a great idea. But that is where it should stop. Time to slope off to the snug when people start getting anal about the stuff !

Kieran Haslett-Moore -

Very well summed up, a ballanced view without the passion showed on BA from some.

Josquin -

You ought to reread the thread, particularly Garrett Oliver's later post, in which he apologizes for misreading the OP and Ron's blog post.

Alan -

That is good and I will reread as I heard through the grapevine telling me Garrett was good enough to email Ron directly as well. He has always been a great ambassador for great beer and this was a bit out of left field perhaps.

Alan -

I think you will see that there is still a technical issue in disagreement even if the manners have been neatened up.
