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."

The Beer Nut -

He looks like he's reading the news because they're going to shoot his family if he doesn't.

Craig -

It's not just the beard, it's the hair, too. He looks like a hobo Santa Claus.

Jeff Alworth -

This is an example of why I fear my tenure as Best Beer Blog in America (TM) is doomed. Genius, and so amusingly told. I toast you with my fake bottle of beer.

Martyn Cornell -

Finns ain't what they used to be, obviously.

YLE would not have been able to sack Mr. Wilska, had he been on YLE payroll. Journalist Union would very likely have stood up for him. Had the case gone to court, YLE's chances to win would have been almost nil. Mr Wiilska's assignment as news anchor was based on a free lance agreement which YLE just terminated. Free lancers have almost no legal protection in Finland, unlike regular employeees.

Heh heh. No, probably not a firing offense, but I guess not all that professional. He's no Schafernaker, though.
