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'm pretty sure they don't let him drink just anything -- it's probably in a glass because because a Secret Service agent brought it to him from the black, radar-invisible van that's parked in the secret tunnels beneath the stadium.

There was that whole fiasco about him not being able to have the Inaugurale out of a keg, after all.

Oh, isn't this fitting. Drinking something that may look nice, clean, and refreshing when in reality its just another tasteless, hype-driven product that lacks any real substance. Oops.

Though, better beer than water.

I think it's fantastic, it doesn't matter what it is, it's a beer! It's a picture of the most powerful man in the world sitting down enjoying the game and having a brew, it makes him human. It's a guy thing and you just know that he hangs out with his buds and has a couple of beers; hell, he may even homebrew!

I'm with Dean.
I did/do support Obama, which i suppose affected this, but i get giddy every time see a new picture with the President with a beer, it just seems right, and we know that he at least seems to appreciate craft beer.
and the keg incident i believe was a bad misunderstanding/miscommunications [growlers guys!!]
If we can hope at least that he supports more local craft brewing, this could be a big boost for craft beer.

I didn't/don't support Obama (didn't/don't support McCain either), yet I like the picture too. "Giddy" might be a strong word, though.

I was under the impression that Obama doesnt drink any form of alcohol. Thats what cnn said during the 8 hour inaguration coverage. They must have run out of things to say and had to start making things up...I do love seeing our president drink a beer in public.
