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."

Stan Hieronymus -

<i>A fine piece of that rarest of birds, real beer journalism.</i>

Rarest? Speak for yourself.

That said, outstanding work by Andy.

Alan -

I did speak for myself and I wrote "rare" because it is rare. Too much writing beer for beer publications avoids touch issues in the same what much of boostering business writing does. Andy's piece proves its case through solid research and calls out a bad business practice. Rare. If that makes you uncomfortable for some reason, deal with it yourself.
