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."

People will just trade down from the $60 Foster's to the $1.50 cans.

BTW, why are eggs vulnerable?

Jonathan -

Eggs are vulnerable because of their fragile shells. Zing!

I know I've often gone to the grocery store and waffled between beer and a cup/plate. Usually I phrase it as a "cup/plate" too, not a "plate/cup."

Alan -

Eggs are vulnerable because no matter how hard things are no one ever says "damn, I just wish I had an egg instead of this beer."

Knut Albert -

I could survive for a long time on beer, seafood and pasta.

As for cups/plates, if worst comes to worst we can drink from the bottle. But I suspect most of the readers of this blog has a few spare beer glasses in the attic or basement liberated from a pub in a distant past.
