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."

Picked one of those up at the depanneur you recommended back in July, gave it 3/5 stars. My notes read "Very floral aroma, definitely an interesting hop- very grassy, kinda Noble. For a dIPA, nice malt dimension and the 87 IBUs seemed soft & restrained. Great new hop." IOW, I liked it and would definitely have another! Did they name the hop on the bottle copy; I failed to note it, despite, apparently, quite liking it.

Cap's in the garbage! ... nope, not mentioned.

This sounds mouth watering. Hope I can find this one out west. Can't wait to try it!
