To drink is both a sublime act of religion and a celebration of humanity.

The alchemical powers of the grape and the grain are felt at weddings and wakes in darkened booths and lively taverns, in hallowed traditions and counter cultural escapes. This delightfully intoxicating anthology celebrates the diverse pleasures of drinking in tales and toasts collected from some of our most well known writers and poets as well as from folklore, philosophers and the Bible.

Featuring writings by C. S. Lewis, H. P. Lovecraft, Charles Dickens, Petronius, and many others, a fascinating anthology celebrates the immense pleasure garnered from drinking throughout the ages, providing an abundance of tales and toasts from Norse feasts, Roman banquets, and Medieval romances, as well as more modern festivities.
