Drinking has reached crisis level - or so we are told. The truth is that drinking has been at crisis level for centuries. "Awash with Ale" tells the story of how Britian's first pleasure resort coped with our ancestors' relentless desire to drink more than was good for them. From the Gin Epidemic to the Beerhouse Booom, from the Cider Rebellion to the Drunken Election - "Awash with Ale" tells the story of Bath in a way you've never heard it told before.

A true delight. Local historians up and down the country, whether they're interested in beer or not, should read Awash with Ale as an object lesson on how to present their subject. The rest of us should read it for pure pleasure. Ted Bruning, editor, What's Brewing
