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 map does not have any scale, but surely it would be better to have goods, including staples such as beer, delivered from the next town instead of running out? If there was one road into this place I would feel pity for them!

We have remote roads but they are mainly in the arctic and seasonal as they need the ground to be frozen, though Wawa to Thunder Bay would be a hard run in the winter - everyone I knew who backpacked warned not to bother hitchhiking that stretch. It looks from the link under "highway" that it is a 550 km run from the coast east to the town.

It's a matter of planning. In Svalbard (more famous now after the Golden Compass movie) they get their supplies in by ship before the ocean freezes. And they make sure they stock up on beer!

Things are worse than I thought down under.
