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."

Bailey -

I'm always astounded by how much some of these lambics smell and taste like scrumpy -- that is, very boozy, raw, sometimes cloudy cider from the West Country of England. You can buy five litres of the finest scrumpy in a farmyard in Somerset for about £5, which is quite a contrast to the price of anything by Cantillon in London!

I have to admit that Gravenstein is one of my favorite flavours of all time but I think I would rather have the cider for, as you say, a fraction of the price.
