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."

Insane. These cases are not really about any grey area so much as (to borrow from legal thought) the voidability of unconsciounable transactions.

Then again, I regularly see quite a bit of stupidly expensive beer in the micro section of my local liquor store. I've paid the price and have tried many of them...some of them are quite good but unfortunately, more than half the time the quality in the bottle doesn't reflect the higher price. But one man's poison is another's elixir, so I suppose that in the end, there is an audience for all of it.

The new world of brewing has brought great choice, but it has certainly also brought a need to be wary of what you're paying an often premium price for.

Alan -

And in the craft beer discourse relative value and bargain hunting seems oddly discouraged. We are supposed to support brewers rather than explore the marketplace.

Are they not even offering a discount on a case of 24? Highway robbery!

Wow - not one "A" in their current crop of products, though they seem to have provided facilities for the making of Pannepot.
