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 -

Hmm... hope I have something stashed better than this Arcadia Anger's Ale. Cidery. Says best before September but has no way to say what year.

Alan -

OK - they lost... but I had an Oro de Calabaza batch 223 and it was a solid effort with plenty of grit and flair like the Wings. Hard to dislike the Penguins so maybe I will dig out a PA brew. Except the Sox still need to take out the Phillies and they are in the 13th inning.

Why is this so complicated?

Voncheeseman -

Hey dude, there's plenty of room for another hockey fan to join in - even if you root for the Red Wings (sorry 'bout that Game 7 loss...ouch, that's gotta' hurt). But, the Wings have a rich winning tradition, more so than almost any other NHL team...so you're in good company...Me? I'm a Leaf fan...and that's why I drink a lot of beer...(well, not the only reason)...but watching my team stink things up for the better part of 40 years goes down a lot easier under the influence of one of God's greatest carbonated creations. Better luck next year (I'm speaking to us both). And, cheers to your great site.
