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."

Once again, everyone has to pay for the sins (idiocy) of a tiny minority.

Of course, for shortsighted, loud groups like this and some populist polititians, banning things is a lot easier than finding the real cause of the problem, and gets them to the cover of the newspapers faster.

I'm so glad to be living in a civilised country.

How thick is your glassware, PF? Maybe that is the real question to ask.

87,000 beer glass related injuries sounds like a lot to me, especially in a such a small country. Are they also including bottle related injuries, perhaps the occasional Sid Viscious type injury?

Alan -

Good point. Note clearly:

"...develop a replacement for the conventional pint in order to reduce the 87,000 glass-related injuries reported each year..."

This is not beer glass related injuries. It is all glass-related injuries.

Ed Carson -

So is it beer glass injuries costing 100 million a year or all glass injuries? And all this broken glass, maybe the reason pubs are going out of business.
