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 forgot to mention outlandish claims of authority, too.

I think this may have to do with the way we monetize everything. Even things that aren't monetized are infected by the thinking of monetization--like Twitter follower totals. As if one's 5,000 followers puts food on the table. So we use statistics as metrics of ... something, never really looking at cause, effect, or independent variables. We have stats, so we we report them out as a way of (we hope!) driving more and better stats.

So this study is telling me that people who have mode disposable income, but are not necessarily swimming in money, i.e., the middle class, tend to have more liberal leanings. WOW! What a revelation!

Fair enough but you are a long way from health claims and political engagement claims when you step off the good ship "please buy my beer". There has to be a limit to what the lucid will bear.

Milk can be made with passion, too.
