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."

Good old sexual innuendo... can't go wrong there.

Another plus... no over-usage of sweeping melodic music.

Alan -

Goofy blatant Canadian innuendo isn't really innuendo.

Lew Bryson -

Very nicely done.

I'm a mumbler. I mumble. Also, I think I may have claimed jokingly that my first experience with craft beer was in 1809 during the peninsular campaign before telling the truth which is that we were probably sneaking into a pub underage.

Alan -

See! I told you not to mention the 1809 peninsular campaign: (a) they would not believe you and (b) no one knows or cares who Don Carlos Verachanggo was and why his contribution to craft beer over 200 years ago matters. Turning cannon into mash tuns as a metaphor for peace and reconciliation. Really.

Jordan St.John -

It's one of my failings that I periodically find it hard to take the hype seriously. Also, the mumbling.
