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."

Nope, buckwheat isn't anywhere near wheat, botanically (nor tastewise). It's not even a grass.

Alan -

Yet the topic is the word "wheat" and not botanically correct study of the genus triticum. Buckwheat is not even a cereal as you say. But it is tasty and, with respect, as far as tastewisiness goes, very much close enough for jazz as I describe above.

No "Otay"? Buckwheat? Eddie Murphy? C'mon that was an easy one!

Knut -

It is not a ceral, so technically it's not even a beer!
