The Story Of Beer by Gordon McLauchla

Beer - making it, selling it, drinking it - has played a major role in the social life of New Zealand since Captain Cook put down the first brew in Dusky Sound over two hundred years ago. The history of our liquor laws is tightly woven into the story of how a fledgling colony became an independent, highly individualistic nation.
Politicians believed that if men were allowed unlimited opportunity to drink, they would always be drunk; and if men and women were allowed to drink together, promiscuity would be rampant. The Story of Beer is a tale of the fun and the folly, of the do-goodism and hypocrisy that saw many of our forebears trying to control where and when people should be allowed to drink beer. Needless to say, they were thwarted at every turn.
