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 have tried maintaining a beer stash in my basement with little success. I now happily outsource my stashing service to the LCBO - they keep it very well stocked and the pay as you go option works too.

Alan -

Its wonderful except for the 93% of beer they overlook.

Pok -

That is a definite drawback but I have to ask myself if I could really do better if the maintenance of my stash was left entirely in my hands. Perhaps my insourced stash is just for those gems that my outsourced stash will not hold.

Alan -

Yup - that's what it be.

The best is unintentional stashes. I found a pair of Fin Du Monde bombers and glasses that was from August 1999 at my parents house. Incredible.
I love the many facets of beerophiles - the tickers, the beer nerds, the snobs, and the crab walking beer stashers.

Matt -

I am like Pok. I keep a few special ones around but would be concerned with my maintenance skills!

"I love the many facets of beerophiles - the tickers, the beer nerds, the snobs, and the crab walking beer stashers."

Very well put. There is no one approach to the affection for this simple fluid.

I like the notion of becoming a squirrel like hoarder of beer, forgetting where many of those beauties were put and coming upon them by chance as I do the laundry or clean out the odds and sods drawer. I will work on that.
