Three Sheets To The Wind Summary

Three Sheets To The Wind: One Man's Quest For The Meaning Of Beer by Pete Brown

Meet Pete Brown: beer jounalist, beer drinker and author of an irreverent book about British beer, Man Walks Into A Pub. One day, Pete's world is rocked when he discovers several countries produce, consume and celebrate beer far more than we do. The Germans claim they make the best beer in the world, the Australians consider its consumption a patriotic duty, the Spanish regard lager as a trendy youth drink and the Japanese have built a skyscrapter in the shape of a foaming glass of their favourite brew. At home, meanwhile, people seem to be turning their back on the great British pint. What's going on?

Obviously, the only way to find out was to on the biggest pub crawl ever. Drinking in more than three hundred bars, in twenty-seven towns, in thirteen different countries, on four different continents, Pete puts on a stone in weight and does irrecoverable damage to his health in the pursuit of saloon-bar enlightenment.

'A fine book. . . the exact tone that a work on this social drug requires.' The Times

'Over 300 bars later and the man still manages to make you laugh.' Daily Mirror

'Carlsberg don't publish books. But if they did, they would probably come up with Three Sheets to the Wind...' Metro

'A marvellous book which is as enlightening about the countries he visited as any travel guide.' Adventure Magazine

About Pete Brown

Pete Brown was born in 1968 in Barnsley, South Yorkshire. He escaped to university in 1986 to avoid going down the pit (though they were all soon closed, so he needn't have bothered). Since 1991 he has worked in advertising, specializing in marketing beer. He has appeared regularly on television as a beer expert and writes on beer for a variety of publications. He lives in London.
