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."

My name is Brian McAleer and I'm VP of Marketing for a AboveGround
Applications, we are currently finishing development on and launching our
first app for the iPhone.
The App is called "NearBeer" and as it sounds, it finds you the closest
point of purchase for beer. More than that, it uses geo-location, social
gaming, and crowd sourcing to provide the best deals as well as other

Seeing as I'm already a fan of your blog it was a quick thought to send you a note. I'd love to tell you more about our app and provide you with details as well as free downloads for you and blog loyalists. We also plan on featuring Youtube beer analysis and tastings with bloggers all over the country in conjunction with local establishments. Would you be interested in having a segment?

Lastly, in your tags, you don't have a listing for Miami and Fort Lauderdale. We're a South Florida based company, perhaps we can help you here? Let us know.

Looking forward to your response... All the best,

Brian McAleer

You can't make me.

And who the hell is Brian McAleer? (A question that won't make sense without his comment, but go ahead and delete it anyway.)

Late, as usual, here's mine.


And I see you made up for your sloth in topic choosing by turning around the round-up blazingly fast. Thanks again for hosting.

I have no idea why I had a burst of energy on Saturday morning but you have shamed my unnecessary speed with a great post in response to the topic.
