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."

He really wanted to ask for an Appletini or a mic ultra. McCain's wife is an AB aire to a fortune so I don't think any of the candidates hold a lot of "Beer Cred". One positive thing I can say about AB - Availability of gluten free beer and organic beer for people who cannot get good beer readily available.

I know someone that just found out they have to go gluten free and they don't have a decent place to get beer. Because AB is carrying a gluten free beer, anyone that gets AB products can get GF beer.

It's a shame to drink bad beer, but not being able to drink beer at all, that's just sad.

Obama may have been saying this ironically. He does use that winking manner occasionally. Not that he actually likes craft beer, but he knows that ordering a designer beer in a bowling alley would get him murdered in the media, so he's making a joke about that.

This is a candidate who admitted his favorite TV show is The Wire, not the sort of thing you say when you want to pander to Joe Sixpack.

Paul of Kingston -

He knows his audience and makes the message fit. No flies on Obama for this one.
