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."

voytek -

We just had a wonderful family weekend in Montreal. Great beers available in many corner stores. Most eateries and coffee shops also have decent beer taps (my guess is that licensing laws are more reasonable). Somehow, amazingly, the society is not on the bring of collapse and drunken hordes don't roam the streets. The proposed changes to the Ontario alcohol licensing laws are laughable (something about "beer tents" and "all-inclusive packages") and don't address the real issue. The issue being a foreign monopoly controlling 85% of the beer market, leaving us with pathetic selections and indifferent service.
