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."

Wow. 5 and a half years and 6000+ posts? That's more than I can imagine ever posting in 20 years. Grats on your longevity so far. It takes real dedication to last that long blogging and still have the desire to share what you know. Keep up the good work.

I seem to remember an old saying: "If it ain't broke..."

I'd like to see several homebrewers use the exact same recipe and ingredients to make the same beer and then compare them. I doubt they'd taste the same.

I'd like someone to tell me where I can find Faro.

I'd like to read interviews with brewers about the biz, brewing and such

Keep doing what you're doing, it's great.

Investigative beer journalism. Is it true that they add artificial sweetener to Coors Light? Imbibing minds want to know!

Wow - I hope I didn't set off a whole industry-wide wave of introspection leading to MillerCoors bailing on beer blogging today.

I think it's great, too. And mega kudos on the number of posts!

It sounds like you do, but you could include beer trippins'. You know, if any of us goes on a beer tour, we could blog about it.

Well of course I would enjoy something homebrew related.

Don't change this one thing though. Your writing. I like how your personality shines through in this blog :-)
