From pubs, alehouses, wine bars, vineyards, across the table, and under the table comes a flowing river of thoughts about drinking. Some of it is profound, some of it is funny, some of it is silly. But all of it's about that most glorious of human inventions: alcohol. From the ancient ('The man who isn't jolly after drinking is just a driveling idiot to my thinking' - Euripedes) to the modern ('Alcohol - the cause of and the solution to all of life's problems' - Homer Simpson), here is wit, wisdom, and drunken ramblings about beer, wine, whiskey, gin, and every other alcoholic substance humans have used to destroy their livers. Mixed with favorite drink recipes, short biographies of potable quotables, and information about favorite watering spots, here's a resource every drinker will want to keep next to the gin bottle.
