Sailor’s Joy: 400 years of Drinking at Sea

The reputation of alcohol on the high seas is a storied one, filled with brawls, sea shanties, and rum (lots of rum). From cabin boys to admirals, from pirates to the East India Trading Company, there's hardly a side of nautical culture that hasn't been influenced by booze. Join Jeff "Beachbum" Berry and David Wondrich as they navigate through the colorful history of nautical tippling - and possibly sing some shanties in the process.
