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."

Probably a stray bullet from many blocks away, a big problem in our more violent cities. My downstairs neighbor had a bullet enter his second-floor window, pass inches above his head, and lodge in the wall. Based on the trajectory police thought it came from the other side of the neighborhood.

I can imagine what went through that guy's head. "If I really am shot, I'm going to be extra thirsty..."

I think it's funny that the guy asked the clerk why he shot him and didn't get an answer!

How rude!

Question: If the guy is able to get shot in the leg, shrug it off, buy beer and proceed to his friend's house on foot,isn't it just a wee bit likely that he was already drunk enough he shouldn't have been served?

Just stopping by this SUPERB site, to offer you all wishes on behalf of everyone at the NSLC...Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, but make sure you use common sense, when it comes to the deadly mix of drinking and driving

Here's some holiday cheer to keep in mind:



Frank -

Is that the same NSLC "common sense" that protects the people of Nova Scotia from the dangers of Tactical Nuclear Penguin?

Alan -

I think that is a highlight of my career that I get sincere but slightly spammy holiday greetings from the very Liquor Commission that taught me to drink.
