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."

Ron Pattinson -

I'm always careful in my blog to never glamourise drunkenness nor promote excessive drinking.

I think. I'm often too pissed to remember.

Interesting, this. We don't tend to mention the intoxicating effects of alcohol much on our blog (although we do so from time to time) not because we're trying to pretend it doesn't make you tipsy, but because, in my view, reading or listening to people describe being drunk is incredibly boring. Almost as boring as people describing the experience of being stoned.

Alan -

We do have euphemisms, though. "Sociability" and "convivial" come to mind. We do not describe being drunk so much as allude to its centrality to the beer drinking experience.
