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."

Gary Gillman -

Alan, Bill Newman, the pioneering craft ale brewer in Albany, NY, offered similar, hands-on brewing seminar back in the late 1980's. I attended one of these and learned a lot. Newman was ahead of his time and unfortunately his brewery later closed. Albany Amber Ale was available as a bottled product for some years after, made under license at other breweries. I am not sure if it is still available or what Bill and Marie Newman might be doing today. Nice people and they made a great product.
