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."

To Alan McLeod: Enjoyed your post about "probing bins". At first, I didn't understand the joke until I realized that folks in the UK call their garbage cans "bins". Then I was horrified at the thought that everyone in Britain and Australia may think Canadian farmers store their high-quality grain in garbage cans! Just to set the record straight: on-farm grain storage bins have no association whatsoever with garbage.
Thank you for encouraging more attention to barley by beer lovers. It makes a difference to your brew, so the more "nerds", the better.
Happy beer drinking from the Canadian Wheat Board.

Well there you go. Thanks for stopping by, Maureen. Didn't mean to start a panic.

I'm more interested in the Canadian Barley Board, which seem to be rather passive..
