Cornell's beer quotes: "So, if you don’t object, my dear, we’ll try a glass of bitter beer."

Genial and gladdening is the power of good ale, the true and proper drink of Englishmen. He is not deserving of the name of Englishman who speaketh against ale.
-- Lavengro, George Borrow (1803-1881)

Erudition of this magnitude is timeless. Originally published in 2013, Cornell's collection of quotes include lengthy explanations. Beer writing without selfies? It's possible, thankfully.
