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."

Brasserie de Blaugies Bière Darbyste is also brewed with fig juice.

Didn't I say that?

Hey Alan. This is Zak Davis from Shmaltz Brewing Company. Just wanted to take a second to say thanks so much for reviewing Rejewvenator. Year of the Fig was, in fact, brewed in 2008, so it's had some time to age in the bottle. I just tried some last week and it's still tasting delicious. This month, we'll be relaunching Coney Island Human Blockhead, our 10% American Strong Lager. If you haven't had a chance to try it before, I'd definitely suggest trying to find a bottle. Thanks again for the support. L'Chaim!! ~Zak

Alan -

ZAK!!! More beer with figs, please.

And just get me samples, baby. The Canadian border is not that impenetrable. That being said, I am on a beer collection trip this Friday and I will definitely look out for more of these good beers of yours.

Steve G -

I think you did say that but you caught me on a short-attention span day and I forget to read past the second paragraph. Oops!

Alan -

"Ne oopay pas!"

I was wondering if you were making a better, cleverer point.
