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 would not hunt it out just on those principles. As you state the beer has to be good first. It would give the place a leg up over other local competition however (beer being relatively equal at all establishments).

There was a coffee place near me that did something similar with their donations. You would get a token with your purchase of coffee and place the token in three different jars corresponding to different charities. I found myself going there a lot more often then other establishments. Then again I found the coffee to be equal if not even better then other establishments.

Also the NYT wire story link is displaying an error currently. Not sure if it is the site or link.

Thanks Dave... or dave. That link rot was super dooper fast. Perchance that is why I quoted such a healthy slab of it. Here is another story on the story.
