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."

New Glarus Belgian Red was my introduction to craft beer. I was 16 years old and some guys I knew would drive – what, 12 hours? – from southwest Missouri all the way up to Wisconsin just to get cases of what they called "the Wisconsin cherry beer." I remember exactly what it tasted like, loved it, and yet I've never had it since. Someday.

But you asked, "Is this the best fruit beer ever?"

No. That would be 3 Fonteinen Kriekenlambic on draught.
