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."

Chad Polenz -

I've never tried this beer, thought I'd love to. I'm a huge fan of expensive beer so maybe I'd be more inclined to try it if it were $8.99 a six pack. $6.99 is just so domestic.

The Beer Nut -

What makes it different? Amber and Alt are interesting. Irish red is Engliah pale ale made on the cheap for the mass market. It is to bitter what American light lager is to pilsner.

Brian Boru is not an Irish red. It's nice.

"Brian Boru is not an Irish red. It's nice."

I think that is one of the most interesting statements in beer blogging history. It is loaded. A haiku of sorts. I have no idea of all the implications. I am a pilgrim in the face of such assertion.
