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'm surprised they went after probably the smallest of the breweries with "monster" in the name of a beer. Brooklyn, Terrapin, and Great Lakes are all bigger. Brooklyn's beer is even closer in name to the energy drink. Guess it shows how strong Hansen's thinks their case is... go after the little guy who'll give up because of lack of funds rather than fight it out. That way they can get precedent set.

I wonder why Monster Cable has not sued them (Monster Energy) yet, they've gone after everyone else...
