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."

Maybe boring in your country, but this is a pretty exciting Tuesday south of the border!

Alan -

You seem to have forgotten the "bellyfeel" element of evaluation.

Myself,I'm all of a quandry.
A quandry of my own making and one which I know I'm not about to receive any sympathy for.
You see on Monday I escape wet European climes for ten days on a beach in Barbados.
" And what's so quandrisome about that you lucky tosser, " I hear you opine.
Well it's the beer again.Specifically the appalling prospect of drinking fizzy Banks/Carib/Heineken/10 Saints crap for ten whole days.
Of course I'll be drinking everything else on offer as it's All-inclusive.
But does anyone know of a hidden oasis of beery wondrousness tucked away under a shady palm tree that I don't know about ?
I haven't bothered asking any British beer bloggers because they're all down on their luck, eating chip butties for Sunday lunch and living off beer scraps sent to them by brewers.
Many thanks.
