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, the brewhouse lives on, winning 2 medals in the 2010 World Beer Cup and 2 more at GABF. Name the brewery and I'll donate a prize to the yuletide photo contest. Of course, I'll do that anyway.

Alan -

I think I am taking door number 2.

Stan Hieronymus -

OK. Sun King in Indianapolis. I even have photos of fermentation tanks on their sides, having just arrived at their new (less snowy) home. What a strange life, eh? But those are from 2009 - must all yuletide entries be from 2010?

Alan -

Heck no. I suspect Ron P., for example, only has photos from the 1840s to 1870s.

Craig -

And so artfully photographed, to boot. Computer screen in the background with the photo in it. I'm going to have to go and to read "The Doors of Perception" again.

Alan -

Not quite - that was the original and rejected take of the photo - note the proctologist's view of the toy lion.
