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."

Yahoo! Thanks again, Alan! You keep writing (and drinking), we'll keep reading (and drinking)!

The photo is indeed from the Jerusalem Tavern. Thank you for the prize! Looking forward to seeing the grand prize winner.

Zak should appreciate he's got something of a collector's item:


Alan -

I have another unsigned and one actually signed from the man himself to give away tonight.

Plus the famed "ugly cover" edition of his first book.

I'm with others here--Lars' is a wonderful shot. My choice for pick of the litter ... so far.

Thanks for the prize Alan, some great shots this year. Let's not forget that Christmas isn't just about the kids, it's also about shallow depth of field and the seasonal offerings of fine local brewers!
I love Lars's shot too, beautiful!
