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."

I think BOTH RateBeer listings are the beer in question, Alan. The ratings on the Schoune version are from October, with the description saying "The first batch was brewed at Schoune, but subsequent batches may be brewed elsewhere", and the ratings on the À l’Abri de la Tempête version are from December, so it's probably a later batch.

Either way, looks like it's awful, regardless of what you think of the politics.

To be fair to Schoune, from RateBeer it looks awful and then God awful when make on the Magdeline Islands. ;-)

This beer is expensive and don't worth tasting it. I don't think it will last long on the market.
