Summer of Lager!

The subconscious runs our lives without us realising. That my posts were facing Bavaria with a Stein of Lager in its fist was no coincidence. I suppose it was ineluctable that summer would summon the spirit of Lager.

Which is as good a reason as any to push what I'm totally convinced is the best book ever written about British Lager*.

In a break with tradition, it isn't just a hastily nailed together collection of blog posts. It is that partly, but there's also a coherently-written short history of British Lager at the start of the book.

The book comes in many forms:

I've got the deluxe hardback edition myself. It looks great. And the cover won't easily get bent or folded.

Not got your copy yet? Then buy Lager! now!

* It's also the only one.

What is it about lager that makes it more suitable for summer drinking than any other beer?

nothing at all. I just associate the summer with Lager because that's when I usually go to Bavaria.

Guinness Special Export is my preferred summer drink.
