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."

Good job on doing the math, Alan.

It is friggin' stupid to ship water (and glass). Grain can go on the slow boat . . .

When we talk about the future of journalism, beer and otherwise, that means the reporter must sometimes consider the answer and declare it bulls**t.

Last night I was lucky enough to attend a private Shmaltz beer tasting at the Blind Tiger. Scmaltz is brewed in NY so it doesn't get more local than that.
