While looking for something on barley water, I came across
this title --

Warm beere, or, A treatise wherein is declared by many reasons that 
beere so qualified is farre more wholsome then that which is drunke cold 
with a confutation of such objections that are made against it, 
published for the preservation of health.
Publication Info: Cambridge : Printed by R.D. for Henry Overton, and are 
to be sold at his shop ..., 1641.

This may answer that age old question as to why the English drink their 
beer warm.
