The Pub: A Cultural Institution – from Country Inns to Craft Beer Bars and Corner Locals
The Pub: A Cultural Institution - from Country Inns to Craft Beer Bars and Corner Locals By Pete Brown $34.99 | Jacqui Small LLP
“How do you sum up something as beautifully anarchic as the British pub?” That’s the question Pete Brown asks at the beginning of his detailed, thoughtful, nostalgic and at times romantic new book The Pub. A talented writer, Brown sets us up for success with this part-history, part-travel smart-looking coffee-table book. While details of individual pubs will need updates or deletions in the future, the in-between matter will stand up to time, as have Brown’s other meticulously researched books. In this book, we get confirmation that a pub is more than just a building with booze—it’s an important part of society, life and place.
