This is one of the best things I have read about someone's personal relationship with beer. Maybe it's that I am tired and emotional, too. After all, I found out this morning that a rabbit had eaten one of my Swiss chard patches. But I don't think so. I think Zak captures that thing, that thought that gets clumsily described as passion. Passion is far less articulate and leads down side roads and dead ends when blindly followed. Go read how Zak puts it. While I go to deal with that bastard of a rabbit.
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."
