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."

Be that as it may, the stuff has spread like wildfire and become very popular indeed in a short space of time, even if it's not outselling other drinks.

Crabbie's is known for its venerable Green Ginger Wine, a Scots specialty sold widely in England as well. The Whisky Mac is one-half each of the ginger wine and Scotch whisky, a winter specialty in the U.K. An extension into the beer area seems a natural for the company and it sounds like it is really taking off.

It wouldn't surprise me in the least if the ginger beer is already much more important for them than green ginger wine.
