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."

Chris -

I listened to Stan on the Brewing Network a few weeks ago. Very good interview. He and his family drove a lot of miles all for good beer. He knows his wheat beer too.

Stan Hieronymus -

Thanks, Alan. You left me feeling giggly.

BTW, Brewers Publications has a yeast beer in the works, "Yeast: The Practical Guide to Beer Fermentation" by Chris White and Jamil Zainasheff. Available in September. Here's the Table of Contents:


Alan -

Yeast! That will be fabulous unless it gets too tabular. It's the life experience of the yeasts that I am keen to learn more about.

Your book is quite the thing, Stan. You have balanced the balance between hints to brewers and an exposition of the basics very nicely. You have interspersed key things with other key things with great aplomb.
