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."

Aw, thanks. The book is definitely happening (20,000 words down) -- the only question is whether we can convince someone else to publish it, or have to put it on the Kindle store ourselves, complete with a naively hand-drawn cover, loads of typos and the body text IN ALL CAPS.

Alan -

Save all caps for when you really really want people to get your point.

See how I stayed within the joke, there.

Bailey, if you need any tips on the wonders of self-publishing, ask my son Andrew. And my other son Lexxie for naively hand-drawn covers.
