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."

I think an Albany Ale T-shirt would make a good prize.

Alan -

WOW! Can that happen?

Can one, say, find a way to get a black hoodie with the logo embroidered on it?

Craig -

I don't know about embrodery, but cafepress can do screen printing.


If you like it, I'll send you a high rez version of the logo.

Alan -

Let me see it. But the general rule has been that I hit up breweries and book folk and others for gifties. Sort of a benevolent cross between Santa and Robin Hood.

How does one actually submit photos to you? I'm sure I'm missing something totally obvious...but please help!

Alan -

I broke the "no photos of dishes of food with a beer" rule. What the heck. I don't care about winning,I enjoyed taking them.
