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."

Am I right in thinking that the strength of the Ambrio has or is about to be changed ?
It's a beer that I've oft enjoyed in the past, if they are messing with it I hope it's not too much.

Great Gatsby -


I think the LCBO ripped-off your description....

Alan -

Good lord! So they did:

"... Pours a translucent mahogany under a fine rocky tan head fresh bread, prune and demara sugar on the nose. This rich brown ale has a toffeelike, softly fruity flavour and sugary finish."

Though I have no idea what demara sugar is!
