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."

Roland + Russell -

A great festival indeed. We were really lucky to be there this year and it was clear that this region will soon be looked at as the new Belgium in terms of craft beers. Roland + Russell is planing to bring some Danish and Norwegian beers to Ontario, but in the meantime, Mikkeller is sending us another shipment which should be here around Christmas.
Back to the festival... Bøgedal (Scandinavian’s only all gravity brewery), Brøckhouse,Svaneke, Nørrebro and Nøgne Ø offered some amazing beers that left us feeling shortchanged for not having them available here on a regular basis.
In short, this region is experiencing a real revolution in beer production with over 100 craft breweries started in the past 8 years or so. Hope we replicate this movement here in this country.
