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."

"Is being criminally disorderly while intoxicated substantially different from just being disporderly?"

I think existing laws against murder, assault and stealing cover pretty much every eventuality. I'm not sure, in general, why we need bespoke laws for every minor sub-classification of crime.

Well, having done my time criminally... as legal counsel, it is amazing how many different ways one can do wrong and how describing them to allow for conviction needs particularization. That being said, why do we care that the intoxication was the reason for the disorder?

The beer in article #1 is Negra Modelo, actually - not Negro Modelo. The article author spelled it wrong the first time but correct later in the story.

But that is what makes it so rare!

I prefer the improper spelling given the craptastic article.
