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."

Bloggy make Joe thirsty.

The fresher bottles are fairly hoppy, which I like. But the aged ones are pretty damned nice too.

Evan Rail -

What grows in purple basil? Westvleteren 8 or 12? I've got Achel in the rosemary (obviously), but I don't know what will come up in the parsley, probably just some crap Chimay.

I am sooooo artsy. I fella looks for a little green, it's August and what does he get in get in return? Jeesh.

I am actually prouder of the basil than the beer as the basil goes into a few litres of olive oil to get me through the Canadian winter.

Knut Albert -

Open the 12 without waiting too long. It's divine, even for Protestants. Or heathens.

Alan -

I am both! It is nestled in the stash for a colder time.
