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."

The Beer Nut -

No book deal, but I've heard Firth and Streep are in talks for the movie.

Alan -

I hope they can keep straight who is who and when which one is speaking and not the other. You know, I've secretly suspected for a while that there is even a third character in there by way of the name "And".

Aw, shucks...

Trying to keep perspective, but even losing ten or fifteen comments has been quite painful. Quite a few others to be restored manually on older posts, too.

Still, we've learned our lesson: backup every forty-two minutes.

Alan -

Careful. Not sure if you are part of the solution or the answer. Remember, alcohol is the solvent that is also a bond.

Craig -

The Firth and Streep—that sounds like a pub.

The Beer Nut -

It sounds like two important -- and too often neglected -- elements of cellarmanship. These days you'll regularly get a pint that was only firthed for a few hours and hasn't had a hard streep applied to it at all. It just doesn't taste the same.

Bailey -

I hate underfirthed pints. They have distinct Michael Sheen to them.

Craig -

When the Michael goes to Charlie, it's time to dump the whole damn batch.
