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."

Wait, am I Oldie Olson?

It's possible you bent my counsel into a shape I never intended. I encourage people to drink Westmalle because, you know, it tastes good.

Alan -

No, I am. See the thinking monkey head? But maybe you are too. Monkey head needs to think about that.

So, whose beery standards did the monks of Westmalle emulate or abide by when they made their tripel in the 1930s? That's a silly question, isn't it? Monkey head needs to think about that, too.

I Agree with you about the sauce thing I've got some Henderson's Relish I've aged in used burbon casks and seeded with wild yeast strains, It'll probably make pie and messy peas taste horrible but will sell for 10 quid a bottle on Ebay.
