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."

Knut -

Thanks for nothing. Maybe someone could buy me a copy of the new BrewMasters series then? No plans of airing it over here.

Knut -

I meant burn me a copy, not buy me a copy.

The Beer Nut -

I think most of the last generation of PAL VCRs also read NTSC. Mine certainly does. Not that that's a hint or anything, I have The Beer Hunter in a cheeky pirate digital version.

Is that a black helicopter I hear..?

Alan -

Look, for all I know you have submitted under an alias with a US postal address redirecting your mail. I am hounded by such loopholes. Haunted even.

Knut -

Well, you are a televsion star in your own right, Beer Nut, so the regular rules would not apply to you. I suppose we should all send parcels to Ireland to help you get through Christmas anyway.

The Beer Nut -

Hell yeah! Now we're talking. Pesky government squandered all our National Imperial Stout reserves. I need bailing out.

Joe Stange -

What is this VHS you speak of? Some sort of new way to watch movies at home? Will it work in my newfangled Betamax machine? The guy at the shop told me Beta was the future.

Alan -

Oh, that would have been so totally sweet. Only on BetaMax... or maybe having it only on 5¼ inch floppy disks. A set of 37.

Jeff Alworth -

My first thought was burning, too. But I wonder if it was done on too large and commercial a scale if we'd bring the fuzz down on us.

By the way, in my defense, I sent in these photos BEFORE that Zak win. And that child photo is my friend Shawn and his son Xander. I'll forward any prizes his way.
