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."

Scoats -

Nifty idea, but we wouldn't be able to do this here in the States, at least not in Philadelphia. All food we serve MUST come from properly licensed vendors.

Alan -

Yes, we had a Scots hotelier visit our house 25 years or so ago and he regretted one thing about immigrating to Canada - he could not serve deer that had been wrapped in burlap and buried for 30 days to get the proper texture.

Paul Garrard -

Just the name along is enticing, "The Pigs".
Great name.

I serve shot food regularly, as you know.

It is well know that I accept game sausages acquired from the pristine Canadian forest and will commorate such occassions with the gift of fine ale.

By the way, are you ever going to make duck sausage? Herb and duck...with a little orange zest in there, too. I am going on a run to Maine and will have plenty of...bartering goods.
