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."

The quote does not contradict the hypothesis that while drinking one pint a day may be unhealthier than not drinking at all, drinking five pints could be healthier.

"Drinking only one pint of beer a day increases the risk of liver and bowel cancer by a fifth..."

That is the point in the quote, my Baltic compadre. While the quote suggests X may be bad, there is no discourse about bad < death. Until the beery health discourse disproves the equation "bad < death" then I can only assume that they are indicating, with the wisdom of a Dalek, that "some bad = death" ... which is, I think we can agree, entirely different than "bad < death."

Why didn't they try this on monkeys first?
