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."

Hey Alan-

I have to admit, I'm left scratching my head after reading this piece. Not because I agree or disagree but because I actually, for once, do not understand the point you are trying to make (if indeed you were trying to make one). I'd like to comment more but I'm not sure what to address.



P.S. Thanks for alerting me to the air date for that interview. You beat my publicist to it.

Alan -

I know what you mean. I wrote it quickly. There is a distinction I am making in there that I am not satisfied with. But I am still more satisfied with it than your beer blogger reference. Let me look at it again. I will show my edits as underlines. Then you can grade my work.
