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."

I can only read the first line of the story in your first link, so it's difficult to tell what it's about. Any chance of a fuller explanation

Hmmm... No alternate source is jumping out at me without going through free registration. But, for today, let's say that the ethical point is apparent in the quotation.

I went through the free registration only to find out that you need to be a premium subscriber.

If there is an ethical problem detailed and solved in the first link, then the Times & Transcript has an ethical problem in not revealing the answer to me without a fee. My god, I have had 4 empty beer bottles on my kitchen counter on several occasions and, get this... I have a nephew!

WHAT!?!? You were looking for the rest of the column to find out Miss Manners' answer? That is itself shocking - but only in the ethical sense, of course.

Amusing to see a MacDonald giving a plug to the Campbells, considering. Not that the MacLeods didn't have their run-ins with the MacDonalds, too, of course …

Well, as I am in full Alan Campbell McLeod these things can get a bit problematic.
