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."

Well, very well said, my friend....

The Beer Nut -

<i>I assume everyone involved with beer has had a hand in it.</i>
An aside that didn't get squeezed into my post was that I recently had to explain to a fascinated, young, pro-brewer what a "beer kit" was. He seems fascinated and slightly weirded-out by homebrewing.

Ilya Feynberg -

Good job Alan at putting these thoughts out there. Of course I agree, no doubt about it. You can always taste and see difference (not just in the beer itself) when the brewer/brewery has a sense of passion, a sense of pride, and more importantly truly appreciates the people that give their creations a chance.

If you're ok with serving crap to people, than your truly missing something and perhaps need to rethink your involvement in the industry as a brewer.
