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."

There is an alternative for convenience store/gas stations (at least those owners more independent that 7-Eleven operators). One near us has started hosting non-macro beer tastings. A recent one featured Deschutes.

Although I didn't notice it in that story there were murmurs in the wine world a while back about private label wines at 7-Eleven.

There is a great gas station south east of Albany NY that stocks Ommegang which I pick up on my way to and back from New England each summer.

And is there a sub-prime... sorry... below premium wine category?

Who is going to make that beer for them? I wonder if it starts with an A, and ends in Busch. Like most of the restaurants who offer their own "house" beers, AB makes it for them.

Sad. So sad. If they are looking for a cheap and inexpensive buzz, there are plenty of other choices out there.

Besides, could it really get any worse than a Bud Lite?

I love the category "below premium"! I think I will be able to use this in my daily life.
