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."

Craig -

I say we keep the good beer and ask the hipster-elite brewers and beer snobs to leave. I think that'll work out to everybody's benefit.

Alan -

I would split off the national craft brewers, too. The interesting stuff is made by those without focus on PR and branding. Single Ingredient focused beers are the disco wide leg jeans of beer. And not that much different than Sam Adams in a can or in a Utopias bottle.
