Well, the man himself would have been horrified given that the Romans thought drinking beer was one step above strangling your parents in the barbarian stakes, but it still exists. And that makes me happy. Here's to Pliny!




And your Pliny the Elder remedy of the day: a wolf's liver in mulled wine will cure a cough. THE MORE YOU KNOW.

I love it! Now, have you actually tried it to make sure it was up to the standards of Pliny the Elder?

I have not! I feel conflicted: Pliny would be so horrified at the very idea of beer, but still it's beer! named after him!
