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."

Whatever it is that deserves an Aventinus Eisbock, I'm probably up for it. I mean, I could buy one for $7.50 (AUD) or so, but having now read the article, how can I feel justified?

I actually work for the paper in which the article was printed this morning - surprised to see you found it before I did :)

The concept of "earning it" speaks to a lot of Australians on a level that I'm subconsciously willing to ignore, I guess. Maybe because the labour to beer ratio never seems to skew in my favor - last I checked, each 2km of barbed-wire fence you single-handedly erect is worth a lukewarm can of VB.

Dog sledding would warrant a Aventinus Eisbock. Just barely. For the dogs.
