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."

My absolute favorite barleywine, can't wait to get some!

Mmmm...y'know, I am the Sesssion Beer Project guy, and I often call beers with a bunch of hops thrown in "dumb." But I do dearly love this stuff. I think it is Da Best of the ridiculously hopped American barleywines. Yum.

And I hate saying 'Yum', too. And I hate Adam Avery for making me say it.


Alan -

Don't judge me by my throbbing eyeball. I really should have said Burtonized or just "hard water" as there are a number of brewers like Avery whose stuff is ultimately lost on me however yum by luck of what is pretty much an allergy.
