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."

Book writing? Beer book writing? There lies madness.

Nevertheless, godspeed.

Martyn Cornell -

Best of luck with the book. Prepare to drive your loved ones mad. I know I don't need to add: "Don't forget the index ..."

Alan -

The index has been mandatory from day one. How else will you be able to tie such tid bits as EP Taylor, Henry Hudson and a 1776 bar fight in another country together?

Alan -

Jeff: there is in this case a word count that is sub-insane. It may have to be written in verse to get it all in but it won't be a counterweight to anything.

I'm leaning towards Homeric couplets

Alan -

That's what the wiki will be for with this book. Alternate renditions in various forms. I am thinking interpretive dance. Unitard, Jordan?
