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."

I went to Broue Ha Ha as well when I was visiting relatives in Ottawa. I really like the layout and as you said the owner was great. He was more than happy to make some recommendations based on other beers I liked. He specifically recommended the Impériale Weizen by Les Trois Mousquetaires.

Thank you Alan for your good comments on my store. It was a pleasure and an honor to meet you.Hope to see you again. I referred my clients to your blog in my weekly email (yesterday). Enjoy !

I think I mentioned, Gilles, that as an Ontarian you embarrassed me with the simplicity, stock and style of your shop, a sort of shop that is bizarrely outlawed in our province.
