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."

Kathryn Stock -

Hello. I was interested to find your website and this article. I am a descendant of James Stock, one of the customs officials in Toronto who testified at this inquiry. I am myself reading through the coverage of the investigation via the Montreal gazette and wondering if you have any other sources to share.

Alan -

No, that is all I have seen so far Kathryn. If you were able to get to a decent law library or a big city one you may find the records of the Royal Commission but maybe only the report,
