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 think styles are simply for judging purposes.

With all these experimental styles, sometimes I think it'd be best to leave a style out of the title and taste it before classifying, if it ever fits.

In the same breath, a good beer is a good beer regardless of title or classification.

I liked this brew.

A great name for a beer, too!

Hmmm, dunno about the name: the "Heart of Darkness" overtones, as you hinted, Alan, are a reminder to those who know of the terrible things Belgium did in the Congo …

Conversely, could we really have a Swiss Imperial Flanders Red if that is what Abbaye De Saint Bon-Chien chose for branding?
