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."

I have not tried that many Phillips brews but the Amnesiac double IPA and Skookum cascadian ale are really nice. Their Hop Circle IPA is ubiquitous on tap in Victoria establishments.

I liked it fine but it got me thinking about that idea with wine of being "on point" by which they mean at a peak. We think in beer of decay or degradation from fresh perfection but there are many points in time when something can come in and out of balance. For me, this one would do will with a little time.
