In one book, learn how 6 drinks impacted humanity:
-Beer with writing and agriculture
-Wine with philosophy and politics
-Spirits with slavery
-Coffee with scientific thought
-Tea with colonialism
-Coca Cola with globalization
The fluids we imbibe have shaped countries, corporations, and communities. In this book by Thomas Standage, he distills down to essential stories for each cup. In brewing, we cross over with barrels and ingredients to all of these beverages, so shouldn’t we know a little bit more about each one? The chapters are short and split into smaller sections, making this an ideal book to step into the past briefly. Quench your thirst for knowledge and respect the beverage in hand!
Also soon to be a 6 part docuseries featuring Dan Aykroyd and other SNL alums!
