Book Description

Max Bahnson and Alan McLeod embark on a swashbuckling romp in the depths of the modern beer discourse. In a perilous journey that takes them through the time-space continuum, where they meet an array of colourful characters, our heroes, never losing their grip on their pints, bravely fight the layers upon layers of bollocks in the realms of Styles, Value, History, Law, Health, Language. PR, Evangelism and Fake Movements. All because they are either very bored, or quite drunk after so much beer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Two cranky guys talk January 13, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Full disclosure: I've "known" Alan for several years -- known virtually, that is: I read his blog regularly and follow him on Twitter.

This is a short, 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 so, well, the geeks will have to get over it.

Why four stars rather than five? Because Alan and Max decided, bless their cranky hearts, to not proofread this manuscript, and this cranky reader/writer was a tad annoyed by that. But this too will pass.

Meantime: Read it!

4.0 out of 5 stars sensical, after all January 26, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you are the kind of person who takes things very, very seriously, then you will probably hate this book. But then, there is a good chance you are a miserable git, too, so maybe you ought to try to shake the habit- Alan & Max's book could help. Now, if you are a big ol Beer Geek(tm) looking for validation, you really need this more than you know! And if you have no idea what that means, well good for you! But don't take my word for it, just the read the damn book.

4.0 out of 5 stars In the End, It's Just Beer March 25, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A very amusing if highly opinionated assessment of the current state-of-play in the craft beer world. The authors make some very good points in their cranky but humorous way. As someone who blogs, writes, and teaches about craft beer, I can honestly say that this book is a great antidote to taking craft beer too seriously. Cheers!
