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."

JJ Bagley -

I have been interested to try the new Michelob products. This Porter looked like the best of the bunch and I am glad to hear you enjoyed it. I had the best Stone Smoked Porter with Vanilla Bean at Blue Palms Brewhouse in Hollywood a couple of weeks ago, it blew me away. I will give this one a try. Cheers

Tried it, not worth it. I think most people are impressed because they had low expectations. Compare it to other porters and you'll see how light in flavor it really is. Yes, it's good fro Michelob, but doesn't pass as craft beer for me.

Alan -

In terms of a value proposition, though. That is my point - no off flavours, none of the dreaded "Mt. Hood" hopping. I am getting a 2-4 for Christmas newbie guests.
