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."

Have only dabbled in big fat Russian novels, but did like this from War & Peace: 'We know that man has the faculty of becoming completely absorbed in a subject however trivial it may be, and that there is no subject so trivial that it will not grow to infinite proportions if one's entire attention is devoted to it.'

It was an intriguing comment. I actually read a ton of Russian lit in college (though in translation). I have read everything by Tolstoy except W&P and a lot of Turgenev and Dostoyevsky. But Gogol--not so much.

I read translations, too. But the prof, whose prof son was a pal in my year, was great. Must have taken three or four courses from him. He knew Pasternak.
