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."

Thom -

I've had to do quite a bit of reading about yeast over the last few years for my brewing masters and I recall reading that the flocculation mechanism of brewing yeast may well be linked to the way that nasty pathogenic yeast strains manage to stick to the human body. It wasn't terribly appealing afterwards when my mind drifted to athlete's foot while I gently decanted a bottle of real ale. Here's a few words I jotted down while I was putting an essay together.


Alan -

Fabulous! I think "flocculate" is the word of the 21st century.
