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."

Kate -

Although this may be a new concept across the pond, in Maine have done this for a long time. We call them Bottle Clubs. Usually, you pay a per bottle fee. Your beer (or wine or liquor) is held behind the bar and served for you. I seem to remember places like this in other states I have visited as well. It's definitely a great way to get customers in the building. You may not make as much profit, but it's better than having an empty bar.

Cheers :)

Alan -

I had no idea - and I go to Maine every summer. Next thing you know I'll find out that there are some sort of sea insect things there that you can eat with melted butter after they are boiled alive.
