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."

Bailey -

Is that goats cheese on top of the beer in the glass...?

Alan -

I now only have my beer with a dollop of goat cheese mousse piled upon it.

P of K -

Uh-oh. I fear this post will stimulate another "art of the pour" discussion.

Jeff Alworth -

Apropos of nothing (except, if I had to justify this comment, your title), but have you ever had Smeirlap (aka Taras Boulba)? I have no idea if it would pair nicely with goat cheese. My comments here: http://beervana.blogspot.com/2008/06/smeirlap-taras-boulba-de-la-senne.html

(Yes, the "pair" was intentional. Impish!)

Cariboo Brewing have been pumping out great beers for the last couple years (including a draft, honey lager, and cream ale) but this year will finally see the release of the Cariboo Pale Ale.
