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."

Pivní Filosof -

I can understand someone dropping hundreds of dollars on homebrewing gear for two reasons. Firstly, if you brew often enough, it will "pay by itself". Say, you brew once a week, that's 52 batches, so the price of the gear will be spread over all those batches. Secondly, even if you don't take into account the above, after all homebrewing is a hobby, I believe there is more value on what you have done with your own hands, than what you can buy at any shop.

That said, $12K for a can?...
