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."

And if these people know so much, why don't they write their own blogs and expose themselves to the comments of fellow bloggers and readers in general? At least Protz does have a blog.

All of them are beginning to sound a lot like that old fart in the park or at the pub, constantly nagging about how much better the past was and how lost youth is today, without realising that fewer and fewer people are listening to him.

And there is the most extraordinarily backhanded compliment as to the quality of Mr. Protz's writing over at Ron's that makes me now want to read Roger P.'s autobiography all the more:

"Despite my own disagreements with some of the things Mr. Protz says (I have co-authored some stuff with him), it is not really fair to expect absolute historical accuracy from him. He writes for a living, and you cannot make a living writing stiff, starchy, scientific or historical stuff, full of tables and charts. It at least has to be readable, interesting and entertaining. Accuracy is not the motive for the writing, saleability is..."

I've read that, and unfortunately, he's right. Which doesn't mean that it's a load of bollocks.

sorry, meant to say, "which doesn't mean that it's not a load of bollocks... should get a beer already, brains not working properly...

Happy new year!

The Protzian body slam morphs into a discourse on accuracy over at Boak and Bailey's place.
