With a lineup that includes such British folk heavies as Peter Bellamy, Robin Dransfield, and Eddie Upton, it's hard not to hold Free Reed's The Tale of Ale: The Story of the Englishman and His Beer up to some of the genre's other great alcohol-inspired collections like . Lloyd's English Drinking Songs and the Clancy Brothers' Come. Fill Your Glass with Us. This collection of songs and stories about "the English and their beer" from folklorist Vic Gammon was originally released in 1977

Many craft breweries report that their version is the most popular beer they sell. With so many IPAs now in the market, the brewers are coming up with all sorts of ways to get their product to stand above the fray. High hop rates are becoming the norm, with ABVs approaching or even exceeding the 10% range growing more and more common. A few points: there’s no evidence for the 1829 shipwreck story. more Porter was exported to India than Pale Ale. it wasn’t primed with sugar in the cask before export. it was the exact opposite they tried to get the beer as fullt attenuated as possible.

Trying Golden Harvest pale ale by 12 Acres and Poles Apart South by Wicklow Wolf. Sorry, I couldn't resist. The labelling on this 12 Acres Golden Harvest pale ale reminds me of the For Dummies range of books. Thankfully, the idea of a For Dummies book is to educate people and that's precisely what Golden Harvest should do. First, it lets you know what's in the beer and where it comes from as well. That's a good thing because this beer was specially commissioned by Aldi and I believe is exclusively for sale in their stores

Englishman, Irishman and Frenchman Joke. Three Englishmen and a Welshman Tale. Scotsman, Irishman, and Englishman in Prison. The last Englishman told his friends he knew how to rile the Welshman and bounced up to the table and yelled, 'St David was an Englishman!' The Welshman replied, calmly, 'That's what your mates were trying to tell m. Gallows Humour. An American and an Irishman were enjoying a ride in the country when they came upon an unusual sight - an old gallows. An Englishman, a Welshman and an Irishman were at the fair and about to go on the helter-skelter when an old witch steps in front of them. This is a magic ride,' she says. You will land in whatever you shout out on the way down. I'm game for this,' says Dai, the Welshman, and slides down the helter-skelter shouting 'GOLD!' at the top of his voice.

For all his love of Gawain, Gareth will not defend murder or vengeance even when Gawain is guilty of them. Seeing that Gawain is "evir vengeable," Gareth shuns him, seeking out Launcelot instead. The true end of love, Gareth's story shows, is marriage. And all the symbolic extensions of the ideal of marriage which Malory had earlier set up in "Arthur and King Lucius" are reintroduced here. Gareth's tale ends in his own marriage and that of his brothers, followed by the related ritual of feudal commendation, wherein all those who have been overcome or rescued by Gareth come to pledge their fealty in return for his protection as overlord; the ending then widens out to Arthur's parallel dispersing of titles and lands

So far Beauty and the Beast has rung the company’s cash register as a cartoon, a Broadway musical, a soundtrack album, and, most recently, a live-action film with Emma Watson. The story was probably first recorded in 16th-century Italy, but Puss seems to have acquired his swashbuckling boots about 100 years later in France, in the same book of stories featuring Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, and Beauty and the Beast, and he’s been rocking them ever since. What’s with the boots?

The Franklin’s Tale recounts the story of Dorigen who is courted by Aurelius during her husband, Arveragus’, absence. She rejects his love and kiddingly says that he can have her if he can make all the rocks from the coastline vanish and thus make her husband’s return safe. In the meanwhile Arveragus returns from his trip and Dorigen is happily reunited with her husband. But Aurelius who still pines for her enlists the help of a magician and makes the rocks disappear. Chaucer then relates the Tale of Melibee. Melibee’s enemies attack his house and his daughter is injured. But his wife, Dame Prudence persuades him to banish all thoughts of revenge and to forgive his enemies. The Monk’s Tale comprises of a series of tragedies. The Knight who can no longer bear the tediously dismal stories interrupts the Monk. The Nun's Priest’s Tale is a merry beast fable.

The History of Beer Comes to Life! We drink it. We love it. But how much do we really know about beer? Starting from around 7000 B. For someone who was a comic book geek before a beer geek, The Comic Book Story of Beer seamlessly melds both worlds. Both fun and educational, it nicely shows how beer’s story is humankind’s story.
