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."

Not sure why white male had to come into it. I don't even know anyone that claims this. There were many before him, and SNPA seems to have been more popular than SABL for a long, long time anyways.

Brando -

Its all explained in the last paragraph of the article. These "fools" are investors in Kochs company, although apparently the author is not. No matter, the only reason this article was published was because the owners of the website are shills for both Boston Beer Company and AB!
