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."

Totally agree, I always have a cold Miller Lite and a bag of peanuts at the ballgame.

Knut Albert Solem -

Well. A good craft pilsener would certainly do the trick, said the European.

Not for me - just when you are thinking about how the crispness of the hops melds with the richness of the malt someone gets tagged off at third by the catcher and you miss the whole play. If you want to focus on the beer, well, go to a bar or better still the backyard.

As it turns out, this rule only applies so far to good old regular Miller. Is that properly named Miller High Life? Anyway, Miller Genuine Draft and Bud Select both fail the ball park beer rule. Plastic. One word. Plastic.
