How to Drink Beer, 1725

J. Nothnagel, Man with Beer (1772), Wellcome Library
“I have not known Thirst since I have used hot Beer: Let the Weather be never so hot, and my work great, yet have I not felt Thirst as formerly... But some will say, Cold Beer is very pleasant to one that is Thirsty: I answer it is true: But pleasant things for the most part are very Dangerous. Cold Beer is pleasant when extream Thirst is in the Stomach, but what’s more dangerous to the Health? How many have you known and heard of, who by drinking a cup of Cold Beer in extream Thirst, have taken a surfeit and killed themselves? ...Therefore we must not drink cold Beer because it is pleasant, but hot beer because it is Profitable.”  
A Treatise of Warm Drink
Reminder: cold beer is pleasant but like most pleasant things it brings death. Cheers!

  1. Thank you for sharing. I first heard that drinking hot beer can quench my thirst. I really want to try it, but I'm allergic to alcohol.

    Or if your man seems to be drifting further away each day...

    Then it’s time to pull out all the stops.

    Because 99% of the time, there is only 1 thing your man can hear that will change his mind and heart.

    Here’s how: ==> Your Ex Won’t Be Able To Resist ]

    And once you say this to him, or even send this simple phrase in a text message...

    It will flip his world upside down and you will suddenly find him chasing you...

    And even begging to be with you.

    Here’s what I’m talking about:
