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."

Did you get this in Hull/Gatineau? If so, where? I looked for it at Broue Ha Ha last week and they didn't have any. Picked up some St-Ambroise RIS and LTM Porter Baltique though.

Alan -

It might have been the last bottle at BHH.

Back in January I had a tasting for friends of 17 stouts and porters, most of which were bought at BHH. D'Esgly earned an early favourite place for many, with its complex flavours, thick body, strong chocolatye smell and unassuming presence altogether - similar to a very strong-headed Québec monseigneur. :) I have looked for it on my subsequent (albeit rare, due to the hit to my pocketbook and dfifficulty to get there by bus) visits to BHH, including last week. (which had me gear up for another tasting this weekend.) Definitely recommended - if you can find it again!
