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."

It's our version of the Flux Capacitor: the important thing is that it *looks* 'truthy'.

Maybe we'll write a separate post about 'weird real ale', although I guess we should save some of this stuff for the actual book.

Alan -

Oh, I see. You want my money.

And here I thought we were friends.


No, no... that's fine. You go ahead...

Bailey -

The first taste is free, man.

Alan -

Excellent! Insider graft is the best sort of graft.

Alan -

So was Slade.
