FOLLOWING what promises to be an incredibly successful run in Edinburgh, The Thinking Drinkers, known for their brilliantly boozy yet intelligently informative pieces, are taking to a stage near you this autumn with the tour of their new show History of Alcohol.

Join the award-winning professional alcohol experts for five free drinks as they definitively prove that hooch has influenced absolutely everything that has ever happened since the beginning of time. And maybe even before that. The acclaimed alco-demics pour the entire history of human civilisation into a shot glass and take the audience on an intoxicating, hilarious time-travelling journey through our drink-drenched past.

The Thinking Drinkers are award-winning drinks writers and comedy performers Ben McFarland and Tom Sandham. They are drinks columnists for the Daily Telegraph, write a bar column for Metro and regularly contribute to an array of international publications including the Spectator, Esquire, Shortlist, The Times, The Guardian, Time Out London, Conde Nast Traveller, Imbibe Magazine, The Independent and Off Licence News. Authorities on all aspects of alcohol, the Thinking Drinkers have appeared on Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch and regularly appear on radio and television espousing their “Drink Less, Drink Better” message.

Having met in their 20s whilst working on a leading pub magazine, Ben and Tom left for America where they co-wrote the award-winning Good Beer Guide West Coast USA. Since then, the dynamic duo have written and performed six critically acclaimed sell-out runs at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, transferred to the Soho Theatre, London’s West End, Madrid and toured the UK extensively including performances at the Cheltenham Literature Festival, Taste of London and the Great Yorkshire Fringe. Their previous Edinburgh show, The Thinking Drinkers Guide to the Legends of Liquor, subsequently inspired their award-winning book The Thinking Drinkers: An Enlightened Imbibers Guide to Alcohol.

They have also been instrumental in launching both Hobo Beer and Hobo Cyder and are creative consultants for an array of alcohol-based endeavours.
