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."

"If this is the same beer reviewed by three beer advocates, they have missed the point."

I re-edited that sentence 17 times to make sure I balanced the interests of all stakeholders correctly...

I picked up a few of these beers today from the LCBO and all were well past it, moving into the unintentional Belgian realm with the sour tang. Sadly, they obviously had not been kept in the cooler to extend their reasonable shelf life. I bought red capped ones, black capped ones and gold capped ones wondering if they were from different points in time. So far, both the red and gold ones have gone quite sour.
