Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0912184094, Hardcover)A humorous "drinking biography" of H.L. Mencken. No one who has read more than a paragraph of Mencken's writing could fail to know that he was a connoisseur of beer but it is amazing so many do not know he also had praise for a wide variety of libations. It is fitting that he coined the word (he later admitted it should have been "omnibibulous") which inspired this book when he said: "I'm ombibulous. I drink every known alcoholic drink and enjoy them all."
