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."

Came across your post. Thanks for your shout out. Microcarbonation does have a real impact in terms of level of carbonation (so a lager that goes down well) and flavour preservation. But above and beyond the tech speak -- your taste buds are the real test. To your readers, let us know about you think of the liquid -- whether good, neutral or bad! Cheers!

Worst entry ever! Once again, Oregon distinguishes itself.

What is it? Looks like a dirt pile with a keg mini fridge in a half built garage. It is so stupendously ugly I am leaning heavily to awarding it a prize. A crap prize but a prize nonetheless.

There's a brewpub under construction in my neighborhood (Migration Brewing), and the do-it-yourself owners have a kegerator in their tunneled-out future pub, to make sure everyone is nourished enough to work.

I hope I haven't moved the picture out of last place by putting it into context.

Not a chance. And it is only in last place if you are counting according to a "goodness" standard.
