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."

Brian Callaghan -

Labatt's IPA and Molson Stock Ale were my favorite Canadian beers in the late 70's to the early 80's. When I went to graduate school in Binghamton, NY, I made more than one trip up 81, to get a couple of cases of each in the Kingston area. These along with Ballantine, Genesse 12 Horse and Mac Sorley were the last of the flavourful North American ales.

I only had one six of Ten Penny. It was good and reminded me of the original 12 Horse.

More articles on extinct Canadian ales are welcome.
