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."

Velky Al -

Starr Hill does a dry Irish stout, called Dark Starr. It is the most award winning dry stout in the US and a mighty fine pint, if I may say so, being every so slightly biased.

There are times I wish being Scottish was celebrated with the same vigour, but then I cringe at the though of people getting hammered on St Andrew's Day (and calling it St Andy's Day or something daft), wearing blue and wearing a thistle, thankfully we don't have an iconic beer brand so I guess it will never take off.

We got dour instead!

Velky Al -

Sounds like a fair trade to me!
