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."

"Jingoistic regional marketing means nothing."

No, its not an indicator of quality beer, but place of origin means something to a certain faction of beer drinkers. Not you or I. But people order a Tsingtao at a Chinese restaurant or some Spanish generic lager at a Tapas bar.

I could ponder why but I've better things to ponder at the moment, like Smuttynose Farmhouse Ale.

Interesting to see that Joe made a similar comment in relation to Belgium today.
