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."

Sounds Delicious! I will send my beer trapper out to get some.

The Beer Nut -

I tried this a couple of months back and quite liked it too.

It would be better to mix one's own, but this is produced for teenagers, not known for the lengths to which they'll go to blend the perfect alcoholic beverage. The website doesn't even recommend drinking it from a glass.

Teens? I may be way past my "best before" date but it strikes me that 2.5% is no way to speak to that market. I see this as a drink for your great aunt.

Queen of the Universe -

UGH. This made me home sick for Germany. After living there for many years, it's hard to have to come back to the States and scour obscure places and sites for stuff that was readily available there.

Thank God you are here to help...:)
