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."

Now that's what I call a "Hop Bomb".

I read somewhere that brewmaster and family member Conrad Oland was among those killed in the exposion.Apparently it was the insurance money from this disaster that the Olands used to buy 2 breweries in Saint John NB - The Red Ball Brewery (formally Simeon Jones) and The James Ready Brewery.
