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."

The Beer Nut -

He loves a single-hopped sauternes-aged imperial saison, does Fred.

Bailey -

Ah, Fleetwood... it would be the kind place where you can still get a pint of mild.

Barm -

Giving free beer to someone who only drinks a half pint each visit is not as generous a gesture as it first appears. It doesn't sound like he's getting his whisky for free.

Alan -

Interesting. Have to make some inquiries.

Craig -

All right I'll say it.

It's not much of a commitment to give free beer for life to a guy who's 94.

Was that too cynical?

Alan -

Of course not! I hope they stood him every second drink for the last five years.
