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."

Quite. Craft beer in America (and arguably therefore by proxy in the rest of the world) is defined, championed and promoted by the American Brewer's Association, a trade body funded by, errr, American craft brewers.

That looks a lot more spiteful when I see it written down, but it's a point that's worth mentioning now and again - that it's all a marketing construct.

Alan -

For me, more bitter than spiteful as the first can be founded on a solid basis.
