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."

Stonch -

I too fully support this idea and will get involved. However - worth remembering that, in my experience, brewers tend to loathe beer geeks and often are rather shy about what they do...

Anton -

I love the idea but I am afraid there is a little mistake.

St. Anou of Metz is not the saint of brewers.

In particular this paragraph
Arnulf was canonized as a saint by the Roman Catholic Church. In iconography, he is portrayed with a rake in his hand and is often confused in legend with Arnold of Soissons, who is a patron saint of brewing.

Nonetheless Arnold of Soissons is the true Saint of brewers and his feast day is 8th July.
