Will Rogers once said he never met a man he didn't like. I feel the same about beer.

George Wendt and beer have shared a lot over the years: good times, great stories, useless trivia, and a successful show business career. In Drinking with George, Wendt invites readers to crack open a cold one and pull up a seat at the bar as he celebrates the indelible, intoxicating beverage and all its irresistible peculiarities. Spinning hilarious and frank tales of his own imbibing adventures--from taking a first sip of his grandfather's Bud as a child in Chicago to a beer-fueled impromptu performance with Woody Harrelson and the U.S. Women's Synchronized Swimming Team--he explores the vast cultural history of brews, tackles basic bar theory, and answers important questions, like:

- What's the real difference between lager, stout, and ale?

- How do you convert your lady into a beer-lover?

- What do you do when your beer is warm and you want to drink it now?

The next-best thing to a barstool and a pint, Drinking with George is all the fun--without the hangover.
