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."

I suppose I should post this comment on Jordan's site, but that was a great read. What I would add, is that is it goes for Pliney, so it also goes for Boston Lager. In today's context, perhaps banal or simply adequate. But 30 years ago, utterly groundbreaking. I am very aware that it's me who's changed more than the beer.

I would say neither you nor the beer has changed so much as the options available on the market. Once in a while I love a cold Miller High Life. But only once in a while given the options.

Funny tweet that claims the first DIPA was circa 2002 Stone Ruination. Because calling it "full time" makes a key difference.
