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 don't chuck stones at anyone, I'm far more civilised than that, I tell them to kindly fuck the fuck off...

Of course Ron showed up. I'd be a little irritated if he hadn't, I had lunch with him today.

Alan -

Excellent! How was the beer? He seems to not have liked the weather.

I think they ended up with five inches. Sunday was blustery, but Monday was cold and sunny. The city did a good job of clearing. It wasn't a really big snow, but I think it was bigger than the Pattinsons were used to. It was nice to meet Dolores and the kids—great family.

The beer was great—I had Cervesera del Montseny's Lupulus and Pretty Thing Jack D'Or. My Buddy Gravey had a smoked dark lager called Smoke and Dagger from jack's Abbey—which he loved, and Ron really liked the cask Oatmeal Stout from Mayflower.

The beer was great but the food...oh, the food...
