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 -

There's no denying that's a great marketing angle. As epic-sounding as Irn Bru's "made in Scotland from girders".

The Beer Nut -

There's a company in Denmark makes beer from a glacier in Greenland. I don't know if any firearms were involved, but <a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_Y5QkyHYuITM/SNYttExgvuI/AAAAAAAAA9E/CfiCiJj9ONQ/s1600/DSCF0048.JPG>their stand at the 2008 European Beer Festival</a> did feature a polar bear which appeared to have lost a competition with some high-velocity lead.

Now with fixed link:

John Wayne supposedly used his yacht the "Wild Goose" to collect iceburg ice for his preferred drink, tequilla.

Alan -

There has to be a Hemingway story around this. Too bad he never wrote "Islands off the Labrador".

Ethan -

"CBW Pale Ale: Better than shooting yourself in the head!"

(don't worry, we're not really naming it 'pale ale;' after all, that style doesn't really exist. In fact, none of them do.)

Alan -

No, but if you had a beer called yellow snow out of Buffalo, well, I might be careful as to its authenticity.

Any plan to brew with Lake Erie ice?

Ethan -

Alan- what Lake Erie ice? I can't find a single cube this year...

Pok -

Sorry to be a downer but I prefer my water to not contain lead, depleted uranium or whatever. Iceberg water - that's right up there with powdered rhinocerous horn on the list of inane ideas people will buy into.
