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 doubt that. Because the overall sales go down in the markets where craft beer is expanding. I don't think China is quite there yet.

Alan -

Science and malt are far more mobile than that. The jurisdiction of German hops alone would shock a Kaiser's dreams of hegemony.

Alan -

"...without beer nerds in 1985, craft beer would not be where it is today..." Interesting observations from a bit of a tangent from me.

Thanks for the link, Alan.

"Surplus resources for geeks to play with" - I think this is a massive point. Surely <a href = "http://www.amazon.com/Economy-Renaissance-Florence-Richard-Goldthwaite/dp/0801889820"> renaissance Florence </a> is not too lofty a comparison?

Craig -

I only have onre thing to say.
