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."

The Beer Nut -

The what-else-I-could-have-been-doing issue makes me glad I don't blog more frequently. My tuba playing would be decidedly sub-par at this rate.

I hope your hosting issues are resolved successfully. And thanks for a reminder that I should probably back up my three-and-a-bit years of content.

Paul -

Hope it sorts Alan. If not look forward to a tuba rendition in Finnish.

No need to panic. There will be a few brief interruptions as we move to new IPs and sort out DNS issues, but your 1284 posts here and 4113 are not in any danger. Also a re-development of our blog platform is currently underway and we'll be migrating you over to that this summer.

Alan -


I know I am a web whimp but, as an admitted internet addict, I get the shakes around these sorts of things. Even if it does tend to put things in perspective, I am happy to know that my server masters are far more sensible about these things. I have the greatest sys admin on the planet.

The Beer Nut -

Yes, but if you didn't he'd just unscrupulously add sentences like that to the end of your comments anyway. Also he's hung like a horse.

Alan, if you should ever decide to have a go with Finnish, do not use the recently introduced Google Translate Finnish feature. You would be better off with tuba. :-)
