Just an administrative question - how do you read this blog? Do you come to the site directly from you bookmarks or read it via RSS or go through link from someone else's place? I am particularly interested in the aggregator users out there as while the readership here has gone up to 3900 visits from over 200 separate folk last Thursday and Friday, RSS appears to have provided only 10% of those visits. Two years ago, with under half the visits and visitors, RSS draw on this blog was over 30% of the total.
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."
