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."

Alan: The book sounds very interesting in spots. Tell me, with all your words of wisdom, why is there not more comments and rebuttle? Does that mean, no one is reading your efforts, or once you've said it, it is the gospel? I notice the odd response, in most cases feeble attempts at boistering their own web sites. I am just curious.

I really have no idea. I have had posts that generated a fair amount of response but most don't. It does surprise me, then, to find out I have almost 3,500 following by Google reader for example.

Alan, 3500 is a great kick at the can. Certainly, some readers will be informative, critical, positive, etc. but I really do find it odd that more readers don't toss their two bits in the fray.
At least some of them could say, "Yup I agree", or, "Alan, you are cracked".
Maybe you should toss a curve out there and get everybody peed off, and see what happens? Might be interesting. Keep informing us on beer topics,,,, you are doing an admirable job of it.
