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."

Oi, Gotta love the Aussies. Been there and loved the people and the Coopers.

G'Day Alan,

The worst part of this is two-fold. The louts were all teens to mid twenties and from Serbian and Croatian backgrounds! All born and bred Aussies but with the prejudices of their forebears inside the big chips on their shoulders.

In addition, this has happened the last three years! They wave flags and chant at each other and then have a chest-beating standoff after they are booted from the courts. Sometimes they are moved on before it all jumps off but sometimes, like in this instance, some peanut throws a plastic lawn chair!

The saddest part - they're not all lagered up! This is just dickheads being dickheads.
