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."

No such luck out in Ottawa yet, but we did get the stout in growlers, which I had not seen until this year. Bought my girlfriend 2 stouts and 2 darks as one of her presents for Christmas. Sufficed to say, she loves me!

Very fine beer indeed. It will be joining the Hockley Dark as their two year round offerings as they have discounted the product of Hockley Gold.
I actually picked up two more for tonight's game.

I guess you already knew that 473ml is a U.S. pint.

Why does Canada use imperial measures, but list them in metric?

Alan -

See, that is why I need readers as I had not bothered to look it up - <i>but</i> would it not be the case in Canada that we are not talking about an imperial measure in this case as that would be a UK pint or even what Canadians call a pint of beer, 12 oz. What we are using here is a non-traditional US measure in our 30 year old metric measurement.

so there really was a metric pint? a proper imperial pint would be about 568 mL.

Agree - very much as a great candidate for stout sessions. Likely the lightest stout I have yet tried. Stoutiness is very subtle and hugely affected by serving temperature. Don't let this one get too cold.
