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."

I am, and you follow me.

I also have a schism. I really only signed up at the request of one of my restaurant patron's request to know what specialty salsa we were serving on any given day, and twitter seemed the easiest way to do that. Now I find it interesting that most of my followers are beer geeks from hundreds and thousands of miles away, with little chance of trying Casa Rojo, Hell-apeno, The Dark Side, Green Machine or Ace. But they seem interested.I try to tweet beer or otherwise from time to time, but it's mostly just salsa updates.

Mmmmm Salsa... oh.. I am on twitter. Not following you though.. perhaps I will change that. My entire life is spent in RSS land really. There is too much information to visit websites all day long. I need that information to come to me.

By the way, I applaud the use of Twitter to announce your salsas. I have lobbied our local bars who have frequent line changes to twitter what the hell they have on tap. I can see their argument about wanting to get me in the door, but really, if I keep showing up and I don't like the selection I am just going to stop going there and choose somewhere else. At the same time, if you have something special this week, wouldn't you rather I know about it so I can make it a point to get over there and spend some of my money?

It's good stuff, when managed properly.

Nice to see the beer bloggers finally moving onto Twitter. Discovered Evan Rail (evanrail) and The Beer Nut (thebeernut) over the past few days as well.
