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."

Wired had a bit about the company ("hobbiest") mentioned in that last bullet point: http://www.wired.com/science/discoveries/magazine/17-08/ff_primordial_yeast?currentPage=all

See Alan, that proposed regulation about listing ingredient's isn't about listing ingredients. It is about placing a warning on labels aimed at people with celiac disease and stating that beer contains barley or wheat. Duh.
I wouldn't mind seeing the big brewers list all the ingredients used in their beers, you could pass a lot of time in the lineup at the beerstore just reading it.
