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."

Alan, if by any chance you make it to Atlanta, I will serve you homebrew beer and home-made BBQ. The beer's likely to be an IPA, as that's what the house beer is, but depending on your timing, you might get a winter warmer, or a märzen, or an Oktoberfest. Otherwise it's an IPA.

Excellent, M. Noix: I love it when I am subtler than is immediately apparent. Delight in the implications adjectival, too. Note that I also used the terms "jug," "it" and "Potsdam" in the post... if you know what I mean.

It's not often I feel lucky to live ten miles from Potsdam, but this is one of those times. Alan, let me know when you're headed this way and I'll meet you there! I still take great pride in the fact that I was there for your first-ever Big M visit.

Just might be almost excuse enough to go back to wifey's home stomping grounds....almost.

I just discovered that Georgetown Brewing Co in Seattle fills growlers for $6 Monday thru Friday. If I could make BBQ in my apartment, I would be a free man.

I discovered the delights of the growler this year. We have a great little brewpub in downtown Chattanooga where I regularly fill up (although it's a little pricey at $14), and another good beer shop that offers a rotating selection of craft beers for $9.
