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."

I lived in Kerala (Kochi) for six months so I hope I can answer. There is only one type of beer in Kerala, pale light lager. Mild Beer in Kerala is simply lower in alcohol content.

Its very difficult and restrictive to buy alcohol in Kerala and most of the liquor stores outside of the tourist districts have only one and maybe two brands available. In some of the hotel bars you will see Kingfisher (premium), Heineken and one other low quality light lager. That would be considered a wide selection.

I knew I could rely on my readers with experience in the sub-continental lifestyle. Is "mild beer" limited to Kerela or is it a term more widely used in India?
