After the government anti-drink attitude during the 1st World War, the 2nd World War saw a surprising turn around in the British government’s view on beer. Beer became viewed as a necessary morale booster both for the fighting men and the civilian workers. How this change in perception arose and the effects of the war on British pubs, brewers & beer during WW2 - how they kept brewing - and drinking, against the pressures of the time are all discussed here. A few further chapters describe the supply of beer to the troops overseas – including the floating Davy Jones brewery, and also brewing on Guernsey during the German occupation, and even studying for IoB exams in a p.o.w.camp in Germany!
