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."

They seem to have reached a deal on the budget, so perhaps the question is "when the beer stops, does government have to start back up?" :D

I think your suspicion of the over bureaucratization is correct. It's also maddening to me that the people who would have been able to shut down the Legion for selling without a license were still employed during the shutdown, but the people who renew licenses were not. Really it's just a microcosm of the tyranny of said bureaucracy.

Beer shortages in MN because of their government shutdown!

You never tried the Noam Chomsky Rant and Rave Anti-Imperial Stout?

Come to think of it, Ayn Rand Bitter would be a good name for a beer, too.

Knut Albert -

The Ayn Rand Objectively Bitter, to be precise.

Knut Albert -

And the Gahndi beer ought to be a mild, I suppose?
