Protecting the Pub

Brewers and Publicans Against Temperance

by David W. Gutzke

  • Description
  • Reviews
Reacting to attacks by temperance reformers in late Victorian England, brewers and publicans formed `the trade', a pressure group with a formidable reputation, though it surmounted internal discord only briefly to defeat the threat of probibition in the 1890s.

Reacting to attacks by temperance reformers in late Victorian England, brewers and publicans formed `the trade', a pressure group with a formidable reputation. However, in this new study, David Gutzke convincingly demonstrates that the trade's awesome reputation was exaggerated, surmounting internal discord only briefly to defeat the threat of prohibiton in the 1890s.
"A study of how one important branch of the drink trade, the brewing industry, was mobilized to resist government support of anti-drink legislation...Gutzke's meticulously researched book tells an interesting story." PARLIAMENTARY HISTORY
