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."

I had this beer in San Francisco at Monk's Kettle a few months back. Admittedly, I'm not a connoisseur of rye beer but this one didn't knock me off my stool. Maybe I need to sample a few more rye beers to compare. Any suggestions?

The Terrapin Beer Company in GA makes at least two good rye beers (The Rye PA single IPA, and Rye Squared, a Double IPA). We tasted them recently at the ACBF in Boston.
