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."

Herb Meowing -

Horrible colour.

Nuff said.

Steve Gates -

Alan, could you please phonetically write the word "gueuze" for me, I have struggled to say this word for as long as I can remember. Thanks.

Alan -

I have no idea myself. I would just say "goooz" but expect that's not quite right.

Bailey -

Sounds like 'hoos-uh' here. (Video, c.2:09)

But maybe the g is sounded slightly?

Alan -

But that is only from the perspective of one languages, right? And, besides, I don't pronounce porter like an 1800s Londoner. I will go guttural on gueuze when I start saying "poah-tah"!
