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."

Bailey -

I'm no market analyst, but I guess there might be a problem where breweries have made "100% British barley" part of their brand (i.e. Carling lager) and there are bidding wars for a limited supply.

But, also, British newspapers always use this format for stories: X could lead to misery for Y as Z prices increase. Their fortune telling is rarely accurate.

But the big brewers will have locked in contracts and there is a surplus to the point farmers are moving to wheat. Hardly a sellers market quite yet.
