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."

When facing a row of hand pumps for beers you haven't tried before the look of a pump clip can be a big factor in your choice of beer.

Alan -

So... you are attracted by cartoon images and choice of fonts in other matters?

Craig -

As usual, my name is conspicuously not the list. Robbed again.

Oh, and if I weren't attracted by cartoons and fonts—regardless of the situation—I'd be out of a job.

Alan -

You're right. I updated #10.

Craig -

That's what I'm talking about!

When purchasing something rather trivial like beer, yes fonts and cartoon images can make a difference (whiskey and wine also fall into this category... though I don't remember a lot of cartoons on whiskey bottles, or wine). I'd also throw in snacks to the list.
