Man Walks into a Pub PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Man Walks into a Pub free pdf It's an extraordinary tale of yeast-obsessed monks and teetotal prime ministers- of how pale ale fuelled an Empire and weak bitter won a world war- of exploding breweries, a bear in a yellow nylon jacket and a Canadian bloke who changed the drinking habits of a nation. It's also the story of the rise of the pub from humble origins through an epic, thousand-year struggle to survive misunderstanding, bad government and misguided commerce. The history of beer in Britain is a social history of the nation itself, full of catastrophe, heroism and an awful lot of hangovers. 'a pleasant antidote to more po-faced histories of beer' - "Guardian". 'Like a good drinking companion, Brown tells a remarkable story: a stream of fascinating facts, etymologies and pub-related urban phenomena' - "TLS". 'Packed with bar-room bet-winning facts and entertaining digressions, this is a book into which every pub-goer will want to dip.' - "Express".
