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."

Adam @ Beer Bits 2 -

At long last this conflict is laid to rest, but, for how long...

Jonathan -

@Adam: Knowing Travis, not long. We've many more beers to battle and many more miles to go before we... uh...

Alan, thanks for your impartial judging. I'll admit, I had my qualms about allowing a shifty Canadian to decide our fate, but you've handled yourself with grace and integrity. And I'm glad you picked up on Travis' packaging woes. Here I was thinking he used newspaper just to prove to us that he READS.

Travis -

These guys have been brown-nosing you for a while now with all their "Bryan Adams is a God" talk" - They knew what they were doing!

Alan - Thanks for judging and next time I'll be sure to pad the package with a few wooden nickles if you know what I mean (wink wink).


PS - I am not sure I want to let this rest on a single brew...

Alan -

Keep it coming! Judging = free beer.

josh -

well, the south has to win something every once in a while.

Stonch -

This is an effing excellent post. I've followed both Travis and the MNB boys for some time (their blogs, not them personally)... indeed I have TWO MNB glasses in my collection, used frequently for Yankie-Doodle-Dan beers from across t'pond.

Alan - when we do finally meet in person it'll be great. But I will be forced to slap you for that god awful "captcha" thing on your blog...it renders comment making a chore, nay, an ordeal
