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."

Alan -

That is interesting stuff. I was so bound up with the question of lambic that I missed it on Friday. But notice the commonality. How many things in good beer are claimed to be exceptional? ATJ finds the book breathless. Brewers are to be respected -which is code for treated as not being business folk. "Craft" conveys some magic as do the elfin hops. Thank God for malt, water and yeast which have not been elevated romantically.
