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 particularly like talking about beef, as it is only one letter away from something I truly understand, and thus I must have some working knowledge of it, etymologically.

But I think you're onto something here. I'm a big fan of brewers being up front with what's in the beer. Hiding little makes me feel like I'm getting a lot.

I'm sure there is some allegory here that can also be applied to writing, but I'm running out of coherent words.

I think I ran out of words, too, but that idea is in the photo.

Calling brewing "art" is even more annoying than wankers parroting the passion shit.

Obsession trumps passion every time.
