“The mouth of a perfectly contented man is filled with beer” – Tom Standage
For Tom Standage, each drink is a different kind of catalyst, bringing us closer to where we are today. Each drink has its own unique story and history. You may never look at your favorite drink the same way again! We are our history. Theodore Roosevelt once said that the more you know about the past, the better prepared you are for the future.
P.S. We are not makers of history. We are made by history. Learn the history of humanity with this unique lens of 6 glasses.
