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."

hey alan, been reading your blog for a while now and love it, thanks for all the great tips. i'm a huge Belgian beer fan and just recently have decided to visit Europe including the UK and Belgium in April. I wondered if you've ever blogged about the best breweries to visit in Belgium? I may only have one day and will be traveling from Reims in France. One of my fav brews is Tripel Karmeliet by Bosteels Broweraj but it may not be a great place to visit. If you had 24hrs what would be your highlights? Thanks in advance, and keep up the great blog!

Why ask me when you can ask the Thirsty Pilgrim! I drank Guinness when I was in Belgium 23 years ago as a backpacking twit. You can't trust me.
