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 photo of the man with the back tattoo gives me joy, but mostly because it's not my back. That said, if you had to get a tattoo of a beer, that's not a bad one and the bigfoot logo sorta hits in with his hirsute nature.

'... hoards of orcs'

Where you hoarding 'em?

Sorry - problem with being a copy editor for the day job is that you notice that stuff even when supposdly off-duty. Hordes.

Hoarded hordes of orcs. That's a name for a beer.

But really, I ring in here mainly to note that I am the REIGNING CHAMPEEN. And I shall attempt to go for two. Anyone ever won it twice, Alan?

Alan -

I can be bought but no one has tried yet.

Jeff Alworth -

International blog-fixing. I'm on the case.

Jerry -

Where do I send my crappy photo?

Alan -
