Description

Pete Brown takes us on a well-lubricated pub-crawl through the story of beer, from the first sacred sip of ancient Egyptian "bouza" to the last pint of lager on a Friday night. It is a 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 is also the story of the rise of the pub from humble origins through an epic, 1000-year struggle to survive misunderstanding, bad government and misguided commerce.

Pete Brown was born in 1968 in Barnsley, South Yorkshire. Since 1991 he has worked in advertising, specializing in 'beer' accounts such as Heineken and Stella Artois. He has appeared regularly on television as a beer expert and writes for the beer industry press.
