Nothing deep or profound this evening. Just a thanks to the readers and, tonight, especially those on Google Reader. After six years of beer blogging, it has become harder to figure out how many people actually follow a blog given those followers on various aggregating services. But one, Google Reader, hit 5,000 followers recently. 5,011 today. I think I'm also glad that you are not all sending in photos to the beer blog Xmas photo contest. Thanks for that, too.
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."
