Inky Beer Factoid: October 1


On this day 1867, “Das Kapital” was published by German revolutionary, Karl Marx.  If you are interested in learning about a critical analysis of the political economy, then this is a great historical read (you might need a few beers to get through that one).  So, even if you don’t agree with Marx philosophy, perhaps you might like him as a person.



Karl was known to be a brewer’s friend by frequenting the pubs of London during his 5 year stay in Soho.  He was never known to shy away from an English pint and would visit the 18 pubs nearby on Tottenham Court Road.  Today, there are only 6.  Prost!
