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."


Jerry -

Hype is a two-edged sword. Sometimes it can call our attention to a beer that may otherwise slip under our radar. I would have never heard of or bothered to go to Dark Lord Days without all the drama and stories of ticket impossibility. On the other hand, I would never have paid inflated prices to buy some West Coast beer purported to be the best in the world ... but after a sip I thought it was a joke ... I love grapefruit for breakfast, but not in my beer!
