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 -

I certainly did not! I mean: beaches, ewww!

Hello from a laptop at the edge of Iguazu Falls, btw.

Nice link. It is truly the righ ttime to remove the monopoly on beer sales enjoyed by the The Beer Store in Ontario. It is not a government organization - it is owned by a clique of the largest brewing companies in the world. They are not accountable to you or I and they do not represent our collective intersts and they are unburdened by healthy market competition.

Beer and wine in corner stores, grocery stores and specialty shops now!

Alan -

It may not be a government organization but as a highly regulated monopoly gifted to the brewers it sure is the government store.

Damn Tusker and Pelforth! Never really associated Pelicans with France before.

18/20. Confused my Bulgarian and Romanian offerings, and that stinkin' Pelforth is a trick question. I got it on my fifth guess.

Alan -

I only knew the Romanian one because of this post from five years ago.

We get Tusker as a regular shelf item at the LCBO so I breezed through there.
