All my fame for a pot of ale

 

Cheers! And Happy Birthday to Shakespeare, who was born in 1564. It turns out 23 April is only a guess of his actual birth date, but he was baptised on 26 April, so 23rd is a reasonable guess.

Valletta, Malta, March 2019

Would I were in an ale-house in London: I would give all my fame for a pot of ale and safety

-Shakespeare, The Life of Henry V, Act 3.2

Gozo’s craft brewery, Lord Chambray, refreshed my recent trip to Malta on several occasions. I especially enjoyed the San Blas IPA, and was entertained by the quotations printed on the back of their bottles! This Shakespeare quote appears on their Golden Bay.
