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."

What a sad excuse for a marketing gimmick... This is silly even by BrewDog standards.

Alan -

Excuse me. It would be a 15% oak-aged American black tripel...

Didn't Dogfish Head and Google already beat them to the punch on this one?

While I am inclined to agree... I can't condem a beer that doesn't even exist yet, let alone haven't in fact drunk.

But, it does sound like a dumb idea.

This is not exactly the same but certainly shares something with Flying Dog's "Open Beer Project" (More than 4 years ago, so the url was long ago seized by somebody else)

Open Source Beer: Free? Better? A gimmick?

Alan -

I was so much nicer about Dogfish Head in your comments, Stan. There was also the phony baloney of "Open Source Beer in 2005, back when the NYT thought beer bloggers worth quoting.

>>Can we stop associating this brewer with craft now?
Thank you for saying this
