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."

Ryan -

I was working for John when he made this beer... I remember coming in one morning to find the kettle half full with some fuzzy business all over the wort. We started talking about what it was going to be and I have to admit I was very skeptical at the time, but it turned out great and I think it got a bad rap from people just because of the initial whiff when you opened the bottle. I always enjoyed the green apple notes in the undertone, and enjoyed the sourness on top that really made it taste like sour candies (in my mind). Glad to hear that it aged as well as I expected.

Cheers Alan. I enjoy the blog... keep up the good work!
