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."

Ahh Victory Brewing, almost assured heaven in a bottle. There are some places that just get it right and they are one of them. Baltic Thunder was one that I had not had the opportunity to try as it rarely made its way to Rochester. However last summer on my trip to Cape May, NJ I found a bottle in the local liquor store (btw: NJ liquor laws are horrid). Anyway I pounced on it. As luck would have it the tail end of a hurricane was coming through that night and I spent the night inside our tiny cabin enjoying this beer!

As a side note we stayed at a campground that had tiny cabins but also had wireless internet. I know, it's no longer camping at that point but let me tell you the ability to stream cartoons from a website that night was heaven when having two small children to entertain during 50mph winds and torrential rain.
