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."

Paul of Kingston -

So what camp does it sit in? British or American? No mention of floral or citrus lead me to think it must be the former but please do tell.

Alan -

No mention of what is absent, true. I failed to record the total absence of its non-existent sour notes, too. ;-)

If anything, it is sort of a better, higher-test Wells Bombardier. Quite nice but to be fair to geographers of beer, I am not aware of an 8% beer with this much bittering hop that also lacks aroma hopping. I like this one but may not map it. Interesting, there is a small regional style of whisky called the Campbelltown. I think this is indicative of the Campbellford Double IPA style.
