Shakespeare and Beer

Clip | 4m 43s

Food and drink are common themes in Shakespeare’s writings. You can find references to beer, ale, wine and more in many of Shakespeare’s plays. Drink is used in celebrations, to heal a wound, to rouse the spirit, to make us laugh, and even, as in Hamlet, to kill.
