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."

Where do eastern Ontario breweries buy their barley from now? From the United States and other parts of Canada?

Alan -

Likely from a massive source like Canada Malting. They have a specialty supply branch called Country Malt. Never heard boo about any issues with "big malt"! And most US craft beer is mostly Canadian malt.

Jake -

Canada Malt is not so Canadian. Owned by the giant Australian-based Grain Corp. They also own Country Malt, Great Western Malt and Bairds Malt to name just a few.

Alan -

Ever so slightly Canadian: "We use excellent quality grain, grown primarily throughout the Canadian prairies."
