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."

In a sea of Chinese beers that are available across China,Snow is indeed one of the larger brands. There is also of course,Tsingtao,Zhujiang and Yanjing who are the other main brands.

I did try it over there but i would go back and buy either Tsingtao or Zhujiang when it comes to a basic lager.

Maybe it will show up here in North America?

They call it Snow because it's all water. Horrendous stuff. Since it has no ingredients to speak of, it's cheap cheap cheap, and sells by the bucketful.

Yeh I'm drinking Snow (flower) in Guiyang China right at this minute. It's cheap and cheerfull, we have to pay 15RMB for what is most likely fake Bud, the Pubu local beer is awefull and Tsingtao is just dull. The Snow's ok for drinking, the hangover could be worse althought the additives are a bit overboard. Comes in at least two types, Green bottle and clear bottle, no major difference I can detect. Watch out where those Eskimos go, don't drink the yellow Snow, just paid 2.9Rmb per bottle form the local supermarket, so hey it's VERY cheap.
