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."

Bit late, but I just came across this.

The real tragedy is that Ireland and Guinness have become so intertwined. Every dignitary, tin pot or otherwise, who arrives on our shores has a pint of Guinness thrust into their hand and are photgraphed. Perpetrating the stereotype of Irish drinking. None of the Irish stouts get a look in. Guinness is not Ireland.

Like the blog.

Alan -

I wonder if "tin pot" in that sense relates to metal quart pots?

Sorry Paddy, but I think centuries of drunken Irishmen have helped perpetrate the stereotype of Irish drinking.

Hey Bill, who is Paddy?
