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."

In related news Kokanee debuted their new "warmness indicator label" today, which turns red when the cans contents are not ready for consumption.

Is either image a picture of a real mountain? If so, can a picture of an actual thing like a mountain be copyrighted?

The matter is a serious one, as both beers are IMHO genuinely dross and must rely on associations with interesting places, sex or unattainable lifestyles in order to appeal.

The Canadian Federal Court website does list it as a "Patent Infringement" case (T-1538-09): http://cas-ncr-nter03.cas-satj.gc.ca/IndexingQueries/infp_queries_e.php . I thought it would fall under "Trade Mark Infringement",much like AB-Inbev vs Brick. Interesting (yet strange).
