The pub is one of Australia's most-loved institutions. The Australian Pub takes us on an intoxicating journey through the colourful history of this Australian icon: from its colonial origins along the waterfronts and roadways used by travellers, through to the mid-twentieth century six o'clock swill, and on to the boutique bars of contemporary cosmopolitanism. The authors trace the essential role of the pub as an enduring provider of drink, food, entertainment, accommodation and illegal betting, as well as its relationship to sport, and its battles with licensing laws. The hubbub of the public bar, patrons' loyalty to the local, the friendship of the lounge, the work of kitchen staff and barmaids, the local standing of publicans, and classic pub architecture and heritage - all are explored in this comprehensive history. This beautiful book celebrates our pubs, proving that they are, and always have been, more than just a place to drink.
