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."

A little more information from R+R. The Espresso Stout is the brainchild of Anders Kissmeyer of the Nørrebro Bryghus fame, now running his own label, Kissmeyer Beer and Brewing. I met Anders briefly at Beau's fest last fall and hear he is working on some more interesting co-brew projects, including some here in Canada.

Twang is so much different. I know that is where you were going with that but I just can't follow you.

Thanks for the Euro-hipster ratings link! Excellent.

Steve Lamond -

have never heard of twing is all...is it a subtle twang, a light caress, rather than a taint?

It doth remind one of the lightest touch upon a mandolin heard from the next floor up.
