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."

Jeff Alworth -

I'm totally with you on this one. And kudos to Rogue for brewing a beer that showcases their ingredients even knowing that the beer geek fringe would pooh pooh it. Our experience seemed to be similar, too--that description is just what I found.

Alan -

Yes, it was you! I had meant to link to your review but then forgot it was yours.

Interesting to report, then that your comment "this beer will taste best the closer it is to the conditioning tank" was not necessarily the case. It held up very well. Bought it a week ago in Ithaca, NY. Should have bought more.
