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."

I like this "Brew Zoo" thing! Also, per your mention of the number of monks, etc. on labels, when I was just learning to drink beer in the 1970s in suburban Chicago, Old Style (for better or worse) was the beer of choice. Didn't much matter if it was in bottles or cans, but we usually wound up with the latter. The label artwork looked as if it had been rendered with a dull brown crayon or a stick, but if you looked at the little Bavarian village scene, there were two things you could convince yourself that were there - especially as the night grew longer. First, there was a frog on a rock. Second was a monk relieving himself. It's been a while since I've stooped to an Old Style, so I don't know if they've changed the label. I can only hope not.
