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."

So glad you liked it! The predominant hop is Citra, though Zeus and Centennial are playing supporting roles. Juicy is certainly something that comes to my mind as well, and Thai shrimp? Now I am craving some.

It was our pleasure to meet you and chat awhile, and I look forward to our next trip your way- cheers!

Ethan, feel free to swing by Albany any time. With free beer of course.

We zoom through Albany two or three time a year on our way to Vermont, so that is absolutely on the table. I'll be sure to let you know when it next comes up. Very likely won't be till Thanksgiving-ish, just an fyi.
