Now that I have a 1940s china tankard I want more. And think the view above is one that I would appreciate. A George II silver tankard for a mere £7,750. It's on eBay right now. I think it's worth it. I am worth it. What beer would it have held two hundred years or so before Orwell daydreamed about The Moon Under Water? It was the year of the second edition of The London and Country Brewer. Stitch?
Have you read The Unbearable Nonsense of Craft Beer - A Rant in Nine Acts by Alan and Max yet? It's out on Kindle as well as Lulu.
Maureen Ogle said this about the book: "... 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..."
Ron Pattinson said: "I'm in a rather odd situation. Because I appear in the book. A fictional version of me. It's a weird feeling."
