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."

Why does Blue Moon always pop up as some kind of "gateway to craft beer."? I hear that often but don't fully understand why someone who drinks Coors would order a Blue Moon and suddenly be opened to the wide world of beer. When I drink Blue Moon, I feel gay- for lack of a better word.

Love the great connection to the Michelson-Morley experiment, one of the great turning times in general physics!

Hops are like the lead singer in the beer band- they get all the coverage but aren't exactly the most important aspect of the beer nor the most talented. It is just publicity.

@Nitch ("Hops are like the lead singer in the beer band- they get all the coverage but aren't exactly the most important aspect of the beer nor the most talented. It is just publicity."

THAT is so eloquently and brilliantly expressed...and SO true.

@natch: if you can't find a better word than 'gay' for the feeling you get from drinking blue moon, than you could possibly sub in "homophobe," I'm thinking.

Y'know, for lack of a better word. Though I could generate a few, frankly.

I wonder. We drove by the Gayety Theatre in Collingwood Ontario the other weekend and wonder if we have lost the ability to have both meanings. If the comment was what you think it was, Ethan, I'd certainly agree but I read it as being not the homophobic comment. Stand to be corrected, however.
