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."

Craig -

Ya got me, I had to look up droopje.

M. Noix -

Careful now. I got a telling off when I mentioned the whole demonololological thing in relation to Stone's branding. The brewery insists they're gargoyles, though more properly they're grotesques.

Though if you drink a Stone beer backwards you can hear the Duvel.

Alan -

Oh really. And such things are not part of the vision of moral order, a reminder of the gates of Hell? I will have to remind the medieval cathedral makers.

Stone might as well be called "Beers by Baal". Still great value but the Evil One would make it that way, wouldn't he.
