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."

so did Taylor and Bates also own a radio station?

Alan -

Yes, it's referenced up there in the upper right of the letterhead, CKTB radio. It still exists or at least the call sign lives on.

Great images! Though the Carling image dates from the 1930s, for me it conjures up memories of O'Keefe's Extra Old Stock ads on Hockey Night in Canada in the 70s.
