This just in from my good friend, photographer and designer Matt Frise.
In The Globe & Mail:
“The Pilgrims would never have landed near Plymouth if it weren’t for the fact that they were running our of beer aboard the Mayflower, says the Boston Globe. They had been granted permission to settle on land much farther south, but the critical shortage of beer (the only potable liquid on the ship) forced them to land on that historic rock.”
