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."

Bailey -

I'm not so sure why corn is so frowned upon. I would be willing to bet that, in a blind-tasting, I couldn't spot those with corn and those without, assuming they were all hopped to a similar degree.

And if you call it 'maize' like Stella Artois do, it sounds quite appealing. (Weasels.)

Alan -

One of the things I am noting in the OCB wiki is that there is lots of positive praise for US colonial pumpkin beer and little for US colonial corn beer. Corn beer was much more prevalent then and much more prevalent now.
