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."

Your appreciation for my neighborhood Narragansett brewing company made this intern very happy. Also, what was the magic industrial sanitizing powder called? I'm looking to start a new batch this week.

Common ground is a valuable commodity and men have always searched for it when meeting each other for the first time. Beer and the enjoyment of that article has always worked in my observation. The universality of beer drinking can work magic and have great impact regardless of age, rank or position. When I wrote my first local history on Kingston dairies my sons made no mention of it but now, when I meet their 20 something friends and colleagues I hear " this is my dad, he wrote a book on beer " and the eyes light up and I bask in it's glow as I answer their eager questions like a learned mage. Isn't it great.
