As men, and adventurers, we all appreciate a good quest. It could be the unrealized Indiana Jones or Han Solo inside of us all, but setting out to uncover something you don’t already know has always seemed like a good use of time to us. In Uncorking the Past: The Quest for Wine, Beer, and Other Alcoholic Beverages, Patrick McGovern–the leading authority on all things ancient and alcoholic–uses his knowledge of the fermented beverages of the past to tell a story about how they affected the world we live in now. From mead, to rice wine, to corn beers, McGovern weaves an intellectually stimulating tale about our favorite mind-altering substance that is as fun to read as it is to picture yourself a part of. We’ll drink to that.
