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."

What's wrong with batting .500? I'd take that! Good post, I love reading beer guys' tasting notes on crap lager, it's funny!

Alan -

Well, nothing at all I suppose but I expect such perfection from the Beer Nut.

Todd -

I'll take those Gary Numan 45s, if you don't mind.

Nice summary of this Session's topic, and bravo for having the courage and strength of will to purchase and consume a fizzy yellow lager.

I don't understand the attraction that Nova Scotians have with Keiths. They're obviously buying an image and have been suckered by the clever Inbev marketers. I personally think that Keiths is one of the worst macros I've ever tasted. I have a really hard time getting past all the DMS (cooked corn, cabbage) that dominates this brand. Rolling Rock is another macro with such a high level.

I missed this post the first time around, but it is funny stuff indeed. As a born and bred Nova Scotian, it causes me no end of embeerassment that this swill is what most folks know of the province (although, I do appreciate the memories that his annual birthday celebration in Antigonish caused me to have and simultaneously forget).
