Squeezed in between leaving the Sox's thrashing of the Jays and retrieving the family from a showing of The Lion King in time for a three hour drive home, I walked around the block near Adelaide and John only to come across Smokeless Joe. I stepped through the door at the tiny dark bar, balanced whether gunning a great Belgian ale would add to or detract from the tasks ahead, and took a pass. Troy has way more detail than I picked up in the 37 seconds I had inside. I will be there another time. Oh yes, I will.
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."
