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 have been working for a while on the Beer Prophet app, we like to think of it as Pandora for Beer that it will help yuo find beers you will like. I'll admit we haven't gotten as much of the Canadian or global beers entered yet we are more American craft beer focused at the moment, but hope to expand in time. That said Alan I know you drink enough American craft beer it may be of use.

I'm a fan of http://untappd.com. While they do not have an official app yet, they have a pretty good mobile-enabled webpage. There is also a third-party app for the service called itappd.

You gotta grab one of the free Six-Pack Equivalent Calculator apps. Helps you compare prices of various serving sizes.

Also available for Android.

Since you have an iPhone, you HAVE to try out the new app Brewski Me! Its SO much better than untapped. Plus, its a real app, not the website crap.
