From memories of fetching beer for his grandfather to drunken antics with college friends, there are stories in here every beer lover can relate to.
Through comical experiences and a deep rooted passion for all things brew, Wendt offers entertaining tips on how to survive a bar fight, barstool workouts, why beer is actually healthy for you, over one hundred ways to say you’re drunk, and of course how to say “cheers” in seventy-seven languages. There is no snobbery here; this book can be appreciated by novice and experienced beer drinkers alike, even both macro and microbrew fans. “Drinking With George” is both witty and well written. It would make a great gift for any beer lover and is a perfect coffee table piece or reading material to pour over while drinking your favorite brew.
