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."

Was your intention to make me jealous? I spent the day putting in windows. Not smoking, not drinking, putting in windows. Back-breaking vinyl windows. Okay maybe I drank a bit (Butternuts' Snapperhead IPA and a little later, Saranac IPA and Pale Ales.) That's beside the point. You smoked meat AND drank—my favorite past time—while I could not. Why would you do that to me Alan, why?

It helps a lot that I am not handy.

Sounds like a great day. I was able to grill some pork tenderloin and pineapple, and enjoy a few Ballast Point Big Eye IPAs in the process. Got to give the slow smoke via the Webber a try though. Hell I even have a shed now (moved recently)!
