Notes On A Beermat - Drinking and Why It's Necessary


 

First published in 2001 to national acclaim, Notes on a Beermat is Nicholas Pashleys ode to the amber nectar of the gods, a witty meditation on beer and everything that goes with itfrom socializing to the solitary pleasures of a beer and a book, to the qualities necessary in a good pub. Most books about beer focus on the beverage itself, how to make it and how to buy it. Notes on a Beermat, the only Canadian book of its kind, explains how to drink beer and why it is absolutely necessary. With characteristic wit and charm, Pashley observes, for example, that to ensure a steady and regular supply of beer, it was necessary to cultivate grain. This in turn transformed early man from the hunter-gatherer to the agriculturist. Even then, beer was making people smarter. Whether youre out for an after-work drink with colleagues or youre looking for a seat at your favourite watering hole, Pashley is your guide. His stories about searching for the perfect pub, the best time of day to drink beer and the silliest pub conversation hes ever had will leave you laughing into your pint.
