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."

Just short of 4,500 daily readers. Pretty damn impressive.

Alan -

It's not about me. It's about you.

And a great comparison is when the paying media go out and hunt out content but keep their wallets shut.

Knut Albert Solem -

Some us will blog for a pint. Just one step up from street beggars.

Scott @TheBrewClub -

Nothing wrong with making money, especially if its from something you really enjoy doing.

Making money by drinking and writing about beer is a very nice idea, and I sure wish I could pull it off somehow! I think readers appreciate the honesty though.

Knut: GOLD!!!

I do think it is important to realize we are discussing a pop culture commodity that is a medium of pleasure. But it is also a commodity of high value both macro-economically as well as, recently, for the individual bottle. Those who write and think about it deserve their share, too.

Tim -

We will blog for beer. Or bacon. mmmmm bacon... Anyone ethically challenged by beer they receive can forward it to me for safe keeping / disposal.

Alan -
