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."

Is the beer/food thing going to be in Potsdam. Because you could call it the "Potsdam Agreement"

Alan -

You should pop up. We'll be staying overnight given the clinky not wanting to lead to the clinky.

Alan -

Early fall. I will let you know when it starts to look like a real event.

Craig -

If I have enough warning, I can probably make it. Potsdam is a bit of a hike (about 4 hours from Albany) but I have a good friend from Canton, so maybe he'll tag along.

Don't forget to place your order from my local distributor, Oliver's, too.

Here's some pics, you can drool over:

'Grabbed the last two of these gems' - which gems?

Alan -

Link fixed, Mike.

Mike -

thanks for fixing the link. Too bad you bought the last of them, I was going to pick one up at Big M this weekend ;) - oh well

Alan -

Now I feel bad. But not reeeeeeeeally bad.

What would you want by way of new stock? I am helping the owner review the wholesale lists as part of the good cause of good beer.

Mike -

does he send you a list of what's available to him? I've been over there 3 times already from Ottawa and I'm normally pretty happy with what he has on his shelves. (Minus the Stella and Carib etc.) But I'm curious what the possibilities are..

Alan -

We were looking at geuezes, saisons and wittes for summer.

Mike -

You know your beer.. as long as its something he hasn't stocked before, I'd be happy.

Regarding Bear World:

Whenever, I go to Kingston from Ottawa from now on, I may have to go via Watertown.
