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."

Alan - MJ mentioned the saxophone because Adolphe Sax, inventor of the saxophone, is from nearby Dinant.

That's why Caracole calls one of its beers Saxo.

Alan -

Yes but, frankly, that is not good enough for me! Why were they drawn to the saxophone and not the uprising of 1466 or the Bayard Horse???

Stan Hieronymus -

I'll confess right off that the thought never occurred to me that I should ask.

Alan -

It's like the Zima / Lewis and Clark thing. I see these things. It's my gift. Who am I to question why?

Alan -

Having my third bottle... since Xmas. Liking it.

Opened one in the wee hours of this morning but barely touched it. Still in fine form this evening despite not being recapped.
