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."

You have lots of good beers to look forward to, they have a consistently high quality.

I love Meantime's beers.

The coffee porter divides opinion, I find. I'm a fan, but not everyone is. It does seem to change from year to year (strength goes up and down in strength, it gets darker, lighter, heavier, sweeter; at one point, they dropped 'porter' from the name altogether) and I always assume the haters had a bottle from a bad batch or recipe.

I'm not sure how well beers like their Helles will travel, though, it's charm being largely down a fairly transient Saaz hop character which seems to disappear if the bottle is any more than a few weeks old.
