A Long-Overdue Website.
A huge thanks to The Country Store (June 29 post – permalink fried) for pointing us to The Modern Drunkard, a website chock full of things of interest to those of us who enjoy spirits of the liquid kind. For example, there is a section called “Great Moments in the History of Hooch,” which contains a timeline of the history of alcoholic beverages starting with 4,000,000 BC and working its way up to today. Here is the entry for 30 AD:
“30 AD Performing his first miracle, Jesus turns water into wine at a wedding, rescuing the occasion from becoming a dull affair. Christ’s entourage soon doubles.”
In addition to a section called “Booze News,” there are other gems such as old (and quite funny) liquor and beer advertisements.
One could easily spend a “Happy Hour” at this site. Cheers!
