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 doubt Benjamin Guinness would have got to be Lord Mayor of Dublin, later Member of Parliament for the City and finishing up with a baronetcy, without having been actively involved in the family business.

Though, frankly, the restoration work on Dublin's medieval cathedrals which gets credited to him as philanthropy looks more like Victorian vandalism to me.

Uh, Alan... John Taylor, of Taylor & Sons, two time mayor of the city of Albany.

Good one! Got a novel based on Albany politics in the 1930s. Maybe it's all bound up with beer.
