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 same year Primator were awarded world's best dark lager and came second in the weizen category. Apparently their 24 degree "Double" is available from Bruisin' Ales in North Carolina, under the name Doppel Bock.

Another crime from the BA frat-house — most of whom are but one step removed from your average youtube commenter.

Most BAers rate beers for the purposes of flagging their own sophisticated tastes and conquest of consumption. The ones I know personally I'll trust, but I generally avoid their opinions and the inherently faulty rating system they use.

If you like it, I'll drink it.
