Songs of Good Company
There are many songs about having a good time with friends, usually with a lot of beer in an inn. Many, such as Good Ale, extol the health benefits of alcoholic beverage, whereas others, such as Farewell to Whisky, take the opposite view.
A Taste of Ale by Roy Palmer, 2000, Green Branch, Lechlade is an excellent collection of songs about beer and ale
The Tale of Ale compiled by Vic Gammon, Free Reed Records, is a classic album of song, music and anecdote.
