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."

Ian in Cowtown -

Hi Alan,

I just returned from a business trip in NYC and saw a story on these two on my in-taxi TV. (New York taxis come equipped with small televisions that run human interest stories while you travel). They had a great attitude and emphasized the fun and creativity of brewing. They are even working on a Eggnog Milk Stout for the holidays. How can you not pull for them?

Oh, speaking of brewing without limits, I also saw the fabled Charles Well's Banana Nut Bread beer in the Whole Foods at Columbus Circle. I regret not buying a bottle.
