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."

You should try and get sites that sell beer merch to send you free stuff and review it. It's a win-win for you and us. I've been (and I'm sure others have too) the unfortunate recipient of knock-off crap on ebay. I found a couple on google: http://www.boozingear.com and http://www.beertees.com.

What To Do With This Here Beer Blog In 2011?

Sir! Sir! I have a suggestion, sir!

Can we have some kind of notification system so that when we post a comment we don't forget to check back and see if there's been any follow up?

All the other blogs have one, sir.

Well, I read on Google reader and so often don't come to the site. BUT: I also don't read because I'm interested in beer. I'm interested in your brain and what comes out of it, so I'm definitely not a representative reader if you're looking for "sponsors" since I don't fit the demographic your sponsors would be wanting.

But, hey, if I have any bright ideas, I'll pass 'em along.

I read on a RSS reader- I've come to your site due to your plea. I guess I represent the reader who's interested in beer news/info- I think I may have even found your site as a recommendation off another site (re: beer) on my reader.

Good luck!

How about some investigative reportage? There's an election coming both federally and provincially - what is in the beer fridges of those potential leaders? Imbibing minds want to know.

I subscribe to your site and others via Google Reader that all show up in a folder I've cleverly named "Beer". Each day I scan the headlines and click through on the ones whose headline peaks my interest.
