10 Delicious Literary Beers to Drink While Reading


This week, we came across a delightful snapshot of something we’d never seen before: a beer inspired by one of our favorite children’s books, The Little Prince! Inspired, we decided to hunt around for other book-inspired beers, and boy did we find them. Hint: they’re probably perfect to imbibe in one of these fine book-encrusted drinking establishments. After the jump, check out ten of our favorites (you may need to make room in the pantry for some cases), and be sure to add your own favorite literary librations in the comments.
