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."

Tim -

Just returned from Portland myself. Its quietly become a great beer city. Novare Res provides plenty of world classics on draught and is definitely worth a stop, though I prefer Brian Boru for a long session. For a neighburhood pub, try pick Awful Annie's on Congress St. They didn't have Shipwreck or Allagash, but there was Brooklyn Lager for $3.50 a pint.

For a final note, Hennepin is in my glass at the moment. Great minds drink alike!

Have you been to many bars that carry Allagash? Tragically, I've only seen one down here in Florida. I was hoping the per capita would be better somewhere in the States.
