John Barleycorn story

    The story goes that three men swear that John Barleycorn must die. They decide to take a plough and bury him alive. But the spring comes and he rises through the soil. After a while he grows big and strong, even growing a beard, so the three men cut him down at the knee, tie him on to a cart, beat him, strip the flesh off his bones and grind him between two stones. But at the end it is John Barleycorn who defeats his opponents, proving the stronger man, by turning into beer.
