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."

"you kids don't know how easy you've got it, when I was your age I had to walk up hills, both ways, in the snow for a beer... and they were all this big. Nothing so easy as those sissy cans you pick up in your fancy Ess You Vees in your fancy micro beer shops. No wonder your arms are so skinny, you don't even need to work to taste your beer. You know, just last week on the television I spotted an commercial for your new cans that are vented and turn blue. We had cans that turned blue too, but that wasn't a good thing back then, oh no, that was back when we used real metal though. Metal was popular before the war, you know. And vents, I'll tell you what, if you needed to vent your can you used a rusty nail off the ground, that's what men did back then I tell ya. You don't know how easy you've got it. Say, have I ever told you about..."

I don't have a caption, but I'm a little perturbed by the pattern left by a liquid pooling between his feet then draining away across the room.

So then she said, "How about we use wallpaper?" and I said, "Wallpaper, pshh, I'll decorate these walls with beer cans!" and then she told me, "Bob, I'll bet you anything that you can't drink enough beer to decorate every inch of the walls here"...well of course I accepted the bet and have spent all day every day down here drinking. That was 7 years ago.

That is nothing short of phenomenal.
I've got a collection of about 110 cans, so this is kinda like my ultimate unachievable goal.
Keep drinking, good sir. You have my utmost respect.
