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."

Curmudgeon -

"A maximum price for beer." How times have changed...

Bailey -

Interesting point, Curmudgeon -- have read a few things recently about governments of the past legislating to keep the price of beer down to avoid revolution and unrest. Can't imagine how high the price of a pint would have to go to prompt that concern in the UK nowadays. (Anxiety transferred to fuel prices, perhaps...?)

Alan -

The opening of this first tavern after the dark years happened three years after the VE Day riots illustrated here. These maximum prices may be more directly related to unrest than you thought at first, Bailey.

Alan -

Good to note that there are still a few wooden structures from the era of those first taverns in Halifax.
