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."

$45? Ouch. Is it 69% as good as the Oxford Companion?

Well, I spend a lot on beer books so the $50 bucks CAN that I spent is part of the flow. That $30 book on 1500s and 1600s fishing off Newfoundland to confirm imports of malt was way more tangential.

What I like about it is that it takes you out of the known beer writers into another realm. I joke about the Tremblay work but it is fascinating to have someone go over US trends without the overlay of Brewer's Association PR crap.

I would enjoy that book. <sigh.>
