A History of the World in 6 Glasses

Posted 8 years ago by Adam Gautsch

Finally finished A Historyof the World in 6 Glasses. Recommend and provided by Meg, the book is a quick and interesting read on how beer, wine, spirits, coffee, tea, and Coca-Cola each defined an era and moved civilization forward in some way, shape or form. I can't say every word was wonderful or every fact interesting but in general it was worth the read. It was nice to get a little history and social significance to some of my favorite drinks. The copy I read is being passed off to Lord and I'm interested to hear if he thinks it is awesome or not.

That's wild. I have the same book sitting right beside me on my desk. It's a very interesting and compelling way to look at history and who doesn't like to read about Beer, Wine, Spirits, Coffee, Tea and Coca-Cola? Each is drenched in a rich story.

We had brief conversation about the book last night at Mexican Monday. I was happy to hear I wasn't the only one who found the Coca-Cola section the most interesting.

I imagine the reason why it was so interesting was that I never associated American imperialism with Coke before. The book does a very good job of making that case.
