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. And yes, while I cannot judge the quality of my own work, I feel you're right to the point here.

That wasn't me. Can you forward the email you received from this other "Travis" to me? Did they send ti from my email or something? That's messed up.

Just re-read this, got it. I've been getting all these emails for a while now. The whole "Beer Wars" thing turned me off. I hate commercial advertising that tries to disguise itself as viral. Oh and BTW - Don't take up MNB on their offer, they'll send you a package no man should get.

See, they seed such confusion we no longer really know who we are.

MNB scares me. I just play along so they won't show up in a van and move into my basement.
