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."

I actually quoted two paragraphs, and didn't just key on the title. Beyond that I think I've said enough.

Alan -

OK, you got me. Someone after you?

Another Alan -

Agreed. I saw the firestorm of a reaction first. Finally got around to reading the article expecting to be enraged, but kept wondering where the really bad parts were. The headline is stupid - designed to provoke the very reaction it received. But the author almost certainly didn't write the headline and it doesn't match her article. Sure, there's a little sloppiness in the writing, but most of the reaction has been far sloppier.

Can we all just admit that I'm right and be done with the whole thing?
