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."

Gary Gillman -

Alan, in many ways this still exists in England in that in good weather (and even bad) people often take the drinks outside and in the adjoining laneways if any. Thy place their drinks on trestle tables if any or on the window ledge. It isn't exactly what Hardy described but the idea is not dissimilar. In Ontario, one can drink outside the pub in a covered area, the Granite has it, Allen's, Bellwoods and numerous others, but it's not quite the same as it is sitdown drinking. However many places in the States are more relaxed about it especially San Francisco.

But those are all on property. This is an actual off-licence by the quart. That would be fabulous. Like buying soft serve ice cream.
