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."

Nice. That green field looks so emerald, I hope there was good stout inter alia to complement.

And the beer, Sir, did it please? Those ranks of casks looked outasight.

I had sips of a lot of great beer over the evening... well, the first half of the evening as I was actually in bed by 9:45 pm. I really liked Beau's Two Weeks Notice, a German porter as well as Grand River's Pugnascious Pale Ale. Hopfenstark's Greg American foreign stout was hitting the spot as were two impromptu glasses of Gatineau's BDT's new Double IPA.

Gary Gillman -

Sounds great Alan!
