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."

Mmmm.... Utica Club. OK, not yet but priming the pump.

Abyss '09. I will never call a beer thick again. Holy Ka-bo-lee. I grew up as a kid in Cape Breton having bread with molasses as an afternoon treat. I didn't know I was in training.

Happy new year... good beer for the night and lite beer for the hangover down here in Chile... I like the "we are in the future" topic... in the last 3 or 4 year the craft beer market has been grown quite huge here and the products are getting better each year, the brewers get serious and standard... so the prices... I must say it's has been a good year for beer, local and imported, for me and some friends who has beggining this "beer trip" in which I has invite them... hope 2011 bring a lot of good beer... and improve the homemade version too... (sorry for the bad english... I should have wrote in spanish...)

Wait... what's wrong with U.C.?

Alan -

Nothing. I am the only beer blogger in Canada who loves Utica Club more than you.

Just had (well last night actually) a "Lava" smoked imperial stout from Iceland. Iceland beer right here in Ontario - that is pretty futuristic! The beer was pretty good too but the $5.70 per bottle did impart a rather nasty aftertaste.
