A free e-book about the history of the Canadian love affair with beer is being offered to iPad users by The Walrus magazine in collaboration with Coach House Books Inc.. Under the Influence: How Labatt and its allies brewed up a nation of beer drinkers is a reprint of an essay by Matthew Bellamy, originally published in the June issue of the magazine. The work was supported in part by financial support from the Writers' Trust of Canada. The e-book version was published in time for Canada Day and is available on iTunes. The cover image of the "stubby" bottle of memory is by Ross MacDonald.
