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 am not Canadian, so I will ask. Hortons?

Phil Carney -

It also sounds so bizarre to me.

This whacko idea would really drive pub owners in BC nutz. They are already half empty due to the economy and the cops. To be in a pub after 6:00 p.m. is taking your future in your hands. To drive home after 2 pints, it's like going through the KGB, SS, Taliban, and the Queen's Cowboys. Having a profile in a pub, even your favourite would just put the icing on the cake.
They do have a Pub Watch or something in Vancouver, downtown, due to the gangs popping one another off, usually 1, sometimes 2 a night. These guys don't answer questions. The local cops and owners, along with employees can spot them a mile away. They are the ones with the Real bling hanging off them, the little tuft of hair(fuzz) under their lip, shaved heads and chests, the BMW, Lexus, Jag or some other imported contraption parked outside with 6000 dollar wheels, and 2500 dollar low profile tires, which all void their dealer warantees.(ha ha)
If I were to visit Alberta, and someone wanted to know all about me, I am afraid I would have to tell them to get stuffed. George Orwell was right, I guess!
