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."

Greg Clow -

This beer is going to be at the LCBO in a couple of weeks. At roughly the same price. For a six-pack. Sigh.

Alan -

It's in a grocery store 45 minutes from here by car right next to the $8.95 six of Ithaca Cascazilla and the $6.99 Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. Even with the 35% at the border, why would I pay the LCBO's price?

Sam Adams seems to always come up with a new beer for the times. Alan got this! Tell me if I'm wrong, your grocery store has 5 brands of "Cheap" beer, Sam Adams, and maybe Heineken or Guiness. Heineken is always green and tasty, Guiness is always thick and yummy.
Sam Adams is always Sam Adams.
Despite variances and seasons, you know you are getting a good beer!
Consistancy is a good thing!
