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."

Just curious: why did you start to include BA subjectivity?

I'm a member there, (though I've never submitted a review) and I am generally positively-disposed (I subscribe, e.g.); but why do you care (if your readers discover that BA and you agree/disagree)?

Alan -

I write these reviews as much as my own notes as anything but there is that desire to be somewhat objective so, especially for newbies, I like to point out that there is a whole world of others out there. I picked the BAers over ratebeer for really unimportant reasons a long time ago - like I like the design better than other rating forums. But mainly it's a habit. I also never post on an even numbered minute.

Ethan -

fair enough.

except for the number thing :)
